Irish band "Mulligan's Stew" entertains runners at the Worcester Labor Day "Mayor's Run"

Castle Hill Park

Ely Street-off Queen Street

Worcester, MA 01609


Hosted by the Somerville Striders Athletic Club



The Mayor of Worcester's wife, the Mayor of Worcester, a District Attorney from Central Mass District Attorney Conte's office, the City Clerk of Worcester....two City of Worcester City Councilors, half of the Central Mass Striders running club, a City of Worcester School Committe member, a coach from North High School...a slew of City of Worcester employees and even a former selectman from Raynham, Massachusetts in attendance and they didn't have to close down Chandler Street and the Worcester Airport like they did four weeks back in Boston at the DNC when they closed down half of New England.

Great night at Castle Hill Park this evening...opening up the festivities was the Irish Band "Mulligan Stew" (yes we had a live band this evening) and closing the festivities was a fabulous array of food and drink provided by City Councilor Barbara Haller, City School Committee Member Joe O'Brien and his wife Lisa and the Castle Hill Park Runners.


Many thanks to all who joined in on our special Monday night run in Worcester, Massachusetts and out of Castle Hill Park in Distric 4.....extra thanks to Mayor Murray and his wife Tammy Murray. The support is appreciated:>)

There will be three more Monday night races and then we will be closing down the Monday night race series until May 2005. The October 10th - Castle Hill Park 3 Miler is in the planning stages and we hope you will support this event which is a fundraiser for the park:>)
