Rec on the Run Kicks off Summer Season
WHAT IS REC ON THE RUN?
Rec on the Run is our mobile pop-up creative arts, sports and games vehicle which offers recreation programs and activities across Manchester. The Rec on the Run vehicle and its engaging staff bring recreation and much more to neighborhoods and parks around our community
The Rec on the Run vehicle can be found across our community during the week and at various special community events.
Rec on the Run is responding to the pandemic by offering all our activities in a “to-go” kit formats. These kits will allow easy activity pick-up onsite. Activities “to-go” kits are limited at each site and are first-come, first serve only. We ask that you refer to CDC and State guidance regarding social distancing and preventative measures to ensure your safety and the safety of our community. Please note this schedule may change.
