Run & Walk for a Noble Cause Set for April 27

WESTFIELD — Registration is now open for the 29th annual Noble Hospital 5k Run & Walk for a Noble Cause being staged April 27. The race begins at 9 a.m., with registration from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. in the Children’s Pavilion at Stanley Park in Westfield.

The 5k run is a competitive road race for all levels of runners, from the novice to the serious athlete. The 3.1-mile course is flat out and back through Stanley Park and the surrounding residential area. A non-competitive walk — great for families — follows the same route as the road race. Individuals, teams, wheelchair racers, and school groups are all encouraged to participate.

After the race, refreshments, activities, and vendor tables will be located near the finish line, and awards will be given out.

Early registration is encouraged. The registration fee for ages 13-59 is $30 before April 12 (seniors 60+ are $20). The registration fee for ages 13-59 is $35 from April 13-27 (seniors are $25). Children under the age of 12 participate free when accompanied by a paying adult. T-shirts and sizes are available to registrants on a first-come, first-served basis while inventory is available.
