The Liz Harris Cannonball Road Race is an annual 1-mile race that can be run or walked. It is held on Schoolhouse Road in Preston in late June. All proceeds benefit the St. James "Kids to Camp" camping scholarships. This event draws seasoned runners along with families and walkers with dogs.
In 2020, we had an Auto Parade to honor over 1,000 volunteers who have made our race a success over 28 years. All participants met at the Liz Harris softball field at Preston Community Park at 6:30pm. At 6:45 the Auto Parade proceeded out onto Route 117 and headed west. The parade entered Schoolhouse Rd from the Route 2A end then headed North along the race route. At 7 o’clock sharp the traditional Cannonball cannon was fired to signify the start of the parade. Autos then blasted their horns for 2 minutes continuing on the road race route until they intersected at the Route 2 traffic light.
