Friends of the Race
On the second Sunday in June, the Litchfield Green will once again come alive with the annual running of the Litchfield Hills Road Race (LHRR). Since its inception in 1977, the Race has become a proud, local tradition, as well as a nationally renowned event.
We are asking you to consider joining us in our exciting festivities by becoming a Friend of the Race. Contributions from our Friends benefit young runners and provide healthful activities in track and field for the youth in our community.
Friends’ gifts also help sponsor scholarships for students of Litchfield High School, Wamogo High School and the Forman School each year and enable us to donate to our local police, medical and civic organizations.
Last year alone, the Litchfield Hills Road Race presented 7 scholarships and donated funds to support community organizations and activities. For a minimum donation of $75, Friends of the Race will receive a complimentary number for the race, an official LHRR T-shirt and your name listed in a special section of the program.
If you are interested in this opportunity to help sponsor the Race, contact “firstname.lastname@example.org” and Jennifer Paul will contact you and send you the necessary form & application.
In order to have your name listed in our program as a Friend of the Race, we need your paperwork back to us by mid-April. So don’t delay! Friend us today!
Thank you for your consideration, generosity and for helping to keep our youth running! We look forward to seeing you on Race day!
