Attention all runners. Officials from the Apple Harvest Road race have announced that the road project on Berlin Street will not affect the race map for this year’s 5-mile or 5K road races. Even though the road construction may not be completed by race day, officials have not altered the course.

“We will be using the same course, but want to notify folks in advance that they will be running on a milled surface,” said race director John Myers in a press release. “Raised catch basins on side of road will be clearly marked, etc.”

All races are sponsored by the Southington Community YMCA. Forms are still available for pre-registration until noon on Saturday, Sept. 30 at the YMCA membership desk. All race info and on-line registration info can be found at www.sccymca.org/apple. The first 1,200 registrants receive a free t-shirt. Plenty of refreshments for athletes with music on the course.

Race day registration will be held at the YMCA from 7 a.m.-8 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 1. Pre-race packages will be available on Friday, Sept. 29, 9 a.m.-6 p.m., and Saturday, Sept. 30, 8 a.m.-3 p.m. at the YMCA.
