Chicopee Thriller 5K

October 29 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

The Greater Chicopee Chamber of Commerce will host its second annual costume-themed Thriller 5K Road Race & Walk on Saturday, Oct. 29 at 11 a.m. A portion of the event’s proceeds benefit Lorraine’s Soup Kitchen & Pantry.

The race starts and ends at Grise Funeral Home, located at 280 Springfield St. Registration opens at 10 a.m., and the race starts at 11 a.m. The 5K running route takes runners to Front Street, through Szot Park, then back to Grise via Abbey Memorial Drive and Fairview Street. A two-mile walking route will turn up Academy Street.

Costumes are highly encouraged for our 5K participants, so much so that we have prizes for Best Individual and Best Group (2 or more people) Costumes.

After the race, participants are invited to Rumbleseat Bar & Grille for an awards ceremony and after-party, which is included in the $35 race registration fee. Prizes will be awarded for fastest runners as well as best individual and group costumes.
