Event Information
This year marks the 10th running of the Fallon Health Canal Diggers 5k; we hope you'll join us. Each year we strive to improve this all-volunteer, 100% charitable race. Our runners can expect a selection of prepared food following the race, Harpoon Beer, a concert, a Kids Race and activities, a performance t-shirt and much more. Please note in registering this year we've added a group rate - great for families or any group, team registrations, and a referral discount for runners who refer their friends.
