2021 Race Update


The Committee is in deliberation and working with the City to come to a decision in regards to the 2021 race.

We feel that this is the most responsible course of action while we move through out the Covid-19 phases.

We are a Fallon Canal Diggers 5K Health and Wellness event.

We value all our supporters over the past years, giving back to the community. We hope you will continue to support this event as it is our 15 year giving back to the city of Worcester and the Canal District.

With the price of the event, it includes a long sleeve awesome tech T to the first 350 registrants.

We will continue to update you follow us on Twitter & Facebook!

We look forward to this year’s event and your dedication to the Canal Diggers 5K

Stay Well,

Your Canal Diggers Committee

Kids Count Too!

A 1K "out and back" race to down Green Street, escorted by the Worcester Police department, allows kids to get in on the fun!

This year, we want you to get up and move around, dance party, walk, take a hike or a bike ride with family. Share your activity with us!
