Welcome

Director’s Message

Welcome to the 24th running of the Bradley Road Race. We’re all hoping for a fine spring day again but the race is on, no matter what the New England weather brings us.

The race committee has been working hard to bring you our best race ever. We expect many returning runners, some of whom have run with us for many years. We also expect a large turnout of Special Olympics and Achilles International runners, all of whom demonstrate that no handicap can stand in the way of personal success.

I want to thank our many sponsoring partners for their continued support of this fundraising event. Also, thanks to our many volunteers from both the Lions Club and the wider community, including the public services from the town of Windsor Locks.

Have a great race! Enjoy the day! I hope we see you and all your friends on the last Saturday in March every year!

Dave Parry, WL Lions Club Past President
Race Director
