About the Event
This long standing, fun community event benefits both the Boxborough and Stow Conservation Trusts. One of the Stow-Minute Man Air Field runways will be closed to air traffic and transformed into an incredibly fast, professionally timed “Personal Record Setting Machine” for our 5K race and free 1-mile “kids” fun run/walk. The National Aviation Academy will kick off the day with their annual free open house with aviation demonstrations, open hangars, games for kids, and plenty of planes to see, touch, and sit in. Also, there will be hot air balloon rides (WX permitting) and plenty of food!!! Celebrate your new PR at the Post 5K Party - Hosted by Jack’s Abby Beer and including BBQ, and live music!
