High Mowing to host ‘Winter Chiller’ race

WILTON – The Monad­nock Regional Milers running club is staging a 4-mile race for all ages and abilities at 9 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 23, at High Mowing School.

The "Winter Chiller" race is the second in a six-run series hosted by the Peterborough-based Milers to promote recre­ation and camaraderie for cold-weather runners and walkers.

Smith said she expects 40 or 50 runners and walk­ers on Saturday, from 7-year-old beginners to marathoners in their 70s.

The race will begin at the school, 222 Isaac Frye Highway at the top of Ab­bot Hill, and follow Mason and Badger Farm roads in a loop.

A $5 registration will be collected starting at 8 a.m. and nonperishable food items are being gathered for donation to local food pantries. Coffee and re­freshments will be served at the end of the race, and prizes for best male and female time and partici­pation will be awarded.

The club advises par­ticipants to use traction aids and to dress appro­priately when running in the cold.
