Run for Food and Fun in the Big Cheese 5K in Athol

April 8, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Big Cheese 5K Runners

The Big Cheese 5K is a blast! You’ll feel accomplished. And most importantly, you’ll know that you’ve done your part to help others in need. Our motto is: “We run for food and fun.” So whether you’re a hard core runner or a happy-go-lucky walker, please join us and bring a friend, or even the whole family (strollers welcome). And if you’re so inspired, feel free to wear a wacky costume. We love wacky costumes!
