Although 2020’s Manchester Road Race will be a “virtual race” due to social distancing concerns from the COVID-19 pandemic, some traditions are too important to forget. This year, the team at Barry, Barall & Spinella ensure the community won’t miss out on seeing popular participant Safety Man by making a scarecrow of the long-time favorite runner.

The Manchester Road Race is a Thanksgiving Day tradition established in 1927 and attracts runners from the local community, across the country and even internationally. About 15,000 people participate each year – individuals, families, and teams, all running together to raise money for various charities. Part of what makes the Race such a good-natured event are the outlandish costumes some of the participants wear during the race, which is a little under five miles long.

One of these characters is Safety Man, who not only runs the race, but also reminds everyone that a good Thanksgiving is a safe Thanksgiving. With this year’s race being run virtually and separately by each runner, the team at Barry, Barall & Spinella decided to provide Safety Man to the community anyway, right outside our offices on Main Street, where the race traditionally begins and ends.
