Charles Pratt Memorial Race set for May 10

ELIZABETHTOWN — This year is the 35th anniversary of the Route 9/Charles Pratt Memorial Road Race in the Elizabethtown Social Center’s 75th year. The center is celebrating with a Throwback Race on May 10, reliving the first Route 9 Road Race in 1979.

Registration is just $2 for adults and $1 for children under 12 — just like in 1979. Age brackets will mirror the first race, with awards for first and second in each category as well as the overall fastest time, youngest and oldest runners. There will be light refreshments after the race. Runners should pre-register by April 25 if they would like to buy a special Throwback t-shirt. The course consists of a 4.4-mile run, beginning in Lewis and ending in front of the Social Center in Elizabethtown.

Registration is at the center from 8:30 to 9:45 a.m. with a 10 a.m. start. Information and registration forms are available, at, and at the center. Contact 873-6408 or for more information.
