When you Race for Recovery, you’re helping to save a life. Your commitment contributes to Addiction Solutions Nantucket’s mission of raising funds for Medically Assisted Treatment for opioids, alcohol, and other substances at Dr. Lepore’s Nantucket clinic. The 2023 R4R provides individual and team fundraising options to make a difference. The race will still feature the traditional 5K Run and 2-mile walk, based at Bartlett’s Farm with the run/walk being on the usual Land Bank routes , or your choice for a virtual walk or run. 

Please sign up for our newsletter to stay in touch for next year’s race and update.

More about RACE DAY

RUNNERS will take on the 5K race, and WALKERS will undergo a 2-mile walk. 

Every participant who commits to a $50 registration fee is part of the solution. Your commitment is essential to Addiction Solutions of Nantucket’s support of Dr. Lepore’s Medicine Assisted Treatment (MAT) clinic, on-island addiction and recovery education, and substance-use disorder prevention.

And don’t run or walk alone! Create teams from your business, organization, friends, and family to be part of this solution.

We also have a VIRTUAL option for  RUNNERS AND WALKERS. Virtual participants can participate anywhere on or off the island, at any time during the designated virtual race days.

More about VIRTUAL Runners and Walkers

Virtual runners can run a 5K (3.2 miles) and should use reliable running APP like Strava, Map My Run, Nike Run Club, etc. Once the run has been recorded on the running app, virtual runners can upload the running app information (and any photos of their run) onto our RunSignUp.com.

Virtual walkers can walk 2 miles anywhere, and please upload photos of your walk onto RunSignUp.com. Walkers will not be timed, and it is simply an opportunity to get outdoors, walk and enjoy the exercise for a great cause!
