In the interest of public health, the 16th Annual Benefit Walk/Run for Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House will take place virtually.

Big news:  Participation in this year's event is now extended through December 30, 2021!

Any time, day or night, between Saturday, November 20th and Thursday, December 30th, complete your distance, submit your results, and upload photos to social media sites!

All 5K and 10K participants will receive an E-Bib and E-Finisher Certificate.  T-Shirts are available for a modest fee and will ship in December/January (only mailed to US addresses, please).  We will also make available a playlist of music and words of encouragement from event Honorary Chair and elite Marathon legend Uta Pippig, as well as Orchard House Staff and Volunteers. 

There are two ways to register:

  • As a 5K or 10K Adult or Youth:  Run or walk along the beautiful streets of Historic Concord, MA, following our USATF-Certified 5K or 10K course maps and guided turn-by-turn with the RaceJoy app.
 
  • As a 1 Miler, 5K, or 10K Adult or Youth:  Not in Concord?  No worries. You can run, walk, stroll, or shimmy anywhere in the world following your own route, moving your own way!  On a treadmill.  Around your apartment.  Up and down the stairs.  In your backyard or basement.  At a playground or park.  The possibilities are virtually endless!

Walkers, strollercisers, and running groups/teams are welcome; youngsters or fitness newbies can start with our easygoing 1 Miler.  Fundraising is most definitely encouraged, but not required.  An added bonus is the ability to utilize the RaceJoy app to chart your progress, get and give cheers of support, and certify your time to qualify for your next big race – you can even track our Honorary Chair, the legendary and inspiring Uta Pippig!

If you’re unable to physically participate, give a Gift Registration to someone you know, make a Donation, and/or purchase a Commemorative T-shirt.  All proceeds benefit the mission of public education and historic preservation at Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House (c. 1650).
