Highland City Striders Fireball Challenge April 16-30th, 2022

As runners, we get a close-up view of the trash that litters our roads. While we can’t stop people from littering, we can do our part and clean up the roads that we run. Since 2019, through this event, over 100 bags of trash were removed from the streets of Marlborough, Hudson and surrounding towns by the Highland City Striders and their families. Supporters pledged donations for the clean-up. We chose the Addiction Referral Center (ARC) as the recipient of the donations. The ARC has been a mainstay in Marlborough for nearly 50 years and they have outgrown their current building. We wanted the money to go towards their new home. This year we are holding the event from April 16th to April 30th. Please consider donating to this worthy cause! Let us runners do the dirty work!

Thank you to our sponsors:
