Applewood is the only self-sustaining non-profit childcare center in the Derry/Londonderry area and this 5K will serve as its primary fundraising event. Applewood has provided high quality early childhood childcare and education to our community for over 25 years. Overseen by a Board of Directors that is comprised of parents, the director, and a teacher representative, Applewood is founded on a strong family-school partnership. Our community supports well-educated teachers, supports parents in their roles as their child’s first teacher, supports each child in their individual growth, and supports each person, both child and adult, as a life-long learner.

Applewood is a community that believes it takes all of us working together to make a difference in the lives of our children. We have created the Applewood 5K in an effort to bring together members of our larger community in support of Applewood’s core mission and values. Funds raised through the Applewood 5K and Tot Trot will be put directly toward teacher continuing education and much needed improvements to our building.

F.A.Q.

 

How do we register for the 5K?

Race registration is being managed by Millennium Running and all 5K and Tot Trot entrants can register by going to their website or by clicking the “Register Now” link above.

What ages can participate in the 5K race?

Anyone ages 6 and up can participate in the 5K. Minors (under age 18) will require permission from their parent or legal guardian, and this can be provided electronically by the parent/guardian when registering their minor through the Millennium Running website. Anyone who is under the age of 12 must run the 5K with an adult and cannot be unaccompanied at any time during the race.

When does registration close? Can I register onsite the day of the event?

Yes, you may; however, registration will be $30 rather than $25. Registration through Millennium Running closes on Friday April 27 at 12:00 noon.

Where do we park? Where do we go when we arrive?

There is ample parking in the Moose Hill School parking lot.
