Back in 1968, coach Luti helped organize what was to become one of the oldest footraces in New England - the "Concord 5-Miler." In recognition of his many contributions to the sport of running - and to the many lives he has touched - the race was named in his honor in 1984.
Start on Clinton St. where the first mile is mostly flat. Starts are chip timed. Mile 2 includes a 6/10 mile hill (Clinton St. then right onto Silk Farm Road). Mile 3 is mostly flat with some downgrades near the end (Silk Farm to Dunbarton Road). Mile 4 begins slightly down then climbs to Pleasant Street with a hill as the course turns east on Pleasant. Mile 5 soon takes a right into the Pleasant View Retirement Community grounds, passing in front of the main building and continuing down Reddington Road all the way to Fruit St. Then right on Fruit and right into Memorial Field. Finish will be on the track. See course map below which will expand to a large pdf file.
Fun Run Course: We will have 400 M and 800 M (1 & 2 Laps on track) races for ages 9 & under and 10-12 starting at 10 AM. Emphasis is always on finishing and having fun.
