After a wildly successful 2 years, the 3rd Annual Michelle Benedetti Memorial Scholarship Fund proudly announces the Hill Thrill Road Race on March 24, 2024. Our afterparty at Maria's on Essex St will also return. In 2023 we had over 471 registrations and will be shooting for 600! We will once again be giving out high quality totes and Ashworth Awards race medallion for all participants.
All of the proceeds support four yearly scholarships awarded to students at Haverhill High school. Michelle Benedetti worked in social services for more than two decades, a majority of which was spent advocating for children in Haverhill and surrounding towns. Michelle was also an avid runner who enjoyed running many races with family and friends. On May 30th 2019, far too soon, Michelle lost a courageous battle with metastatic breast cancer. This event honors her love of running and her advocacy for children.
In true HaverHILL fashion the 5k route is great for seasoned runners, avid walkers, or anyone in between. The 10 miler will be a nice tempo run for our friends in marathon training or anyone looking to take on a larger challenge. There will be prizes for the top 3 male and female competitors in multiple age brackets, raffles and lots of great swag for purchase. As mentioned, Maria's Restaurant (81 Essex St. Haverhill) will be hosting the afterparty where we will distribute the prizes and celebrate Michelle!

Mishstrong is very happy to up our game on race swag! Every participant will receive a custom Ashworth award medal! This will be a die cast medallion that can stand on its own, so will make a very nice memento!
So here is the thing. We LOVED our 5k course. So how do you make it better?? Run a solid 7 miles before you hit the hills of the last 3. Enjoy!
We will run the 10-mile course by sending out that group with a little head start on the 5k runners!
Rolling hills, to say the least! Get ready for a nice challenge!
