Groton, Massachusetts, March 8, 2023 – The Squannacook River Runners are pleased to announce a partnership with Groton Hill Music Center to host the 2023 Groton Road Race.

A recent addition to the race is a Fun Run, which will be held on the music center campus, making it perfect for aspiring racers and their eager spectators. 

“When the Groton Road Race approached us about using our campus for their event, it was immediately clear that their mission aligned perfectly with ours,” stated Lisa Fiorentino, CEO, Groton Music Center. “As one of the newest community institutions, we felt that providing a new home for the Groton Road Race, one of the community’s oldest institutions, made for an ideal partnership.”
