2024 Hill Thrill Road Race 

 2024 Hill Thrill
(Michelle Benedetti Scholarship Fund)
Haverhill, MA 

Event Details 

After a wildly successful race last year, the 3rd Annual Michelle Benedetti Memorial Scholarship Fund proudly announces the Hill Thrill Road Race on March 24, 2024. Based on feedback we are adding a second 10 mile course as well. The 5k and 10 mile course will return (we will be softening the 10 miler a little bit based on last year). Our afterparty at Maria's on Essex St will also return. There will be new giveaways this year and a new Ashworth Award 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! Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We thank you in advance for your support and generosity!
