Big 5K Road Race

Join The Big E for a special race day that kicks off the Fair season! Run or walk the 5K Road Race or challenge a friend to 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! Submit your time before this year's race day and we will mail 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 500 and receive a swag bag with a t-shirt, single-day admission ticket to Fair, patio party drink ticket and more. Dress in your Big E best as team and solo runners have an opportunity to win The Big E Spirit Award! All proceeds from benefit agriculture and education youth activities at the Eastern States Exposition.
