Motorists urged to use caution during Maple Leaf
Since being revived eight years ago by the Manchester Lions and the Manchester and the Mountains Chamber of Commerce, the race - which is celebrating its 36th anniversary - has grown and now attracts approximately 1,000 participants from over 30 states as well as foreign countries.
There is still time to register by going online with a Maple Leaf Half Marathon search or by calling the Manchester Chamber of Commerce at 362-2100.
The race this year is being presented by the Perfect Wife Restaurant, the Spiral Press Cafe, and by MVP Health Care, as well as 40 other local businesses. All net receipts from the race benefit over 20 local nonprofit organizations.
