The Big 5k Road Race & Scramble

September 3, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Join The Big E for a special race day that kicks off the Fair season! Run or walk the 5K Road Race or compete with a friend in the fun Big 5K Scramble—a course with Big E-themed challenges around every corner. This family-friendly event also includes a Kids Fun Run for ages 10 and under. Cash prizes will be awarded to top finishers in both the Road Race and Scramble. The event wraps with a Storrowton Tavern Patio Party that includes giveaways and an awards ceremony.

Can’t make it? Run or walk the Virtual Race at your own pace from any location you choose—on the road, on the trail, or on the treadmill! Be among the first 300 people to register and submit your time before September 3rd, and we will mail you a special swag bag for participating.

Do the race solo, sign up with a team or run for a cause! Register now to be in The Fun 300— the first 300 people to register will receive a swag bag with a t-shirt, single-day admission ticket to Fair, patio party drink ticket and more. The first 100 kids registered will also receive a swag bag.

Dress in your Big E best as team and solo runners have an opportunity to win The Big E Spirit Award! All proceeds from the race benefit youth agriculture and education activities at the Eastern States Exposition.

As part of Hunger Awareness Month, we invite you to help us address food insecurity in our community by donating non-perishable food items to “Stuff the Van” for West Springfield’s Parish Cupboard. Our goal is to fill the Parish Cupboard’s delivery van with healthy food for people in this region. Bring your donations to the race and receive free Giant Slide tickets for your visit to The Big E!
