For the last 20 years, the Corridor Nine Chamber has organized a very successful 5k Road Race in September in conjunction with the Town of Northborough's Applefest celebration. This race has grown into a well-known tradition in Northborough attracting runners from all over the Central Massachusetts region.

This year's race is scheduled for September 20th. The start and finish of the race is held at the Zeh School, 33 Howard Street, in Northborough.

We attract 300-500 runners annually and the race is professionally timed and scored by Yankee Timing.
