Almost 2,000 runners registered, and more than 1,700 showed up and finished under the threat of cloudy skies on Sunday, 6/18, for the 42nd annual Father’s Day Road Race in Fairhaven.
At first, it looked like the rain would hold out, then a gentle summer rain christened the race at the beginning. About a half-hour in, the s
kies opened up and dropped rain like a giant bucket, and lasted for about 10 minutes. It did not seem to stop anyone, though. It even added to the festive mood for some.
The Road Race supports scholarships and donates money to a variety of civic and nonprofit groups in the area, including police and fire, food pantries, the senior center and other groups. Last year the race donated $23.400 to local organizations.
