ABOUT POUND THE PAVEMENT

RAISING THOUSANDS FOR CHILDREN EVERY YEAR: THE GREATNESS IS CLEAR.

WHO WE ARE

ASMG is sponsoring this race to benefit the local communities in which we live and work. Each year, we will choose different projects which benefit local not-for-profit or public agencies. In our inaugural year, we are working to provide much needed computers to the Sunderland Elementary School, and to begin creating a scholarship fund for local students.

USATF SANCTION

This event is a USATF sanctioned event. Not all races are created equal, and not all are sanctioned.

A sanction demonstrates our commitment to abide by USATF rules of competition, and allows a record to be set at this event and be considered an official USATF record.

In addition, a sanction is evidence of our commitment to provide a safe environment for participants and spectators. USATF members who are injured during the event may also be eligible for secondary medical insurance, per current USATF membership rules.

RACE DETAILS

The race will start at 9:00 AM at the Sunderland Elementary School (1 Swampfield Dr., Sunderland, MA), and will follow a loop course through local farms and neighborhoods, with a mixture of shaded streets and open streets, all with beautiful views, finishing back at the elementary school.
