‘eRace Irene’ to Benefit Waterbury Flood Relief

“eRace Irene,” a 5k run or walk to benefit Waterbury’s flood relief efforts, will take place Sunday, September 18, at 10 a.m. at Hope Davey field in Waterbury Center.

Race organizer Tom Thurston, a Waterbury resident who also directs the town’s Independence Day road race, organized the event as a way to quickly raise money for Waterbury residents affected by the flood. Proceeds from the $25 registration will go to the Waterbury Good Neighbor Fund, which helps residents who are in immediate need of assistance. 

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., and T-shirts will be given to the first 300 entries. The course is flat and fast. To reach Hope Davey field, take Exit 10, head north toward Stowe, and turn right after Ben & Jerry’s on Guptil Road. Continue for 3 miles. For more information, contact Tom Thurston at 244-1912 or tomgthurston@gmail.com.
