PEPPERELL -- This year, the Pepperell Covered Bridge 5K will be organized by the Pepperell Youth Soccer League (PYSL). Race proceeds will benefit the PYSL.

After five successful race years, the Friends of Pepperell and the Pepperell Covered Bridge 5K Race Committee are taking a year off to rejuvenate ourselves. We are happy to lend this popular event to another Pepperell organization that shares our objective of active recreational offerings.

Registration is open for this year's Pepperell Covered Bridge 5K - scheduled for the last Sunday in September, Sept. 24. For more information and to register, visit

The committee expects to be back next year for the 2018 race. In the meantime, look for a unique and exciting new play structure to be added to the playground at Friends Park on Town Field. Town Committee approvals are pending!
