MANCHESTER — The 25th annual Cigna-Elliot 5K Road Race drew in more than 6,000 runners and packed downtown Manchester with spectators for one of the Granite Sate's largest races.
On Thursday night, thousands of participants filled the streets of the Queen City, all running in support of the Elliot Regional Cancer Center's fight against the deadly disease.
Despite temperatures hotter than an oven, racers pushed through and were greeted at the finish with a massive spray of cold water from the Manchester Fire Department.
