Campus Classic 5k and Fun Run
Join us for this year’s event on May 6, 2017!
The NECC Campus Classic 5K and Fun Run has something for everyone. Participants can run or walk the USATF certified 5K course through NECC’s picturesque Haverhill Campus and surrounding neighborhoods or cheer on their friends as they race to the finish line. We also offer a Fun Run for children ages 12 and under on our track.
New this year, the race will feature a variety of special attractions for children, including a brand-new “Touch-a-Truck” event, face-painting, and various crafts. In addition, runners and their guests are invited to attend an after race party, beginning at 11:30 am at the Barking Dog Ale House, 77 Washington Street, Haverhill. We hope you will join us!
