REGISTRATION OPEN FOR EXETER HOSPITAL’S UNITED IN WELLNESS ROAD RACE SERIES

Registration is now open for Exeter Hospital’s 2nd annual United in Wellness Road Race Series. This series is comprised of 10 community road races with each race committed to supporting local community organizations within the Seacoast area. Exeter Hospital and presenting sponsor, Seacoast United Sports Club, invite the community to celebrate the commitment of our community partners by participating in one or more of these road races.

Individuals registered for the series by August 15 will receive a participation gift. Prizes will also be awarded to participants who complete 5 or more of the races in the series. Registration in the United in Wellness series is free. Participants must also register for the races which they want to run/walk, and each race has its own registration fee.

The series kicks off on Sunday, April 9 with The Beyond the Rainbow 5K in Newmarket, NH. Race organizer, LOCO Races, will donate up to $1,500 in matching contributions from runners in their race who donate to The Beyond the Rainbow Fund at Exeter Hospital.  Specific details may be found at www.greatbayhalf.com.  This Fund assists patients in need who are undergoing treatment at Exeter Hospital’s Center for Cancer Care.
