WESTBOROUGH _ On Sunday, May 8, 2016, South County Physical Therapy, Inc. (SCPT) cheered on and hydrated hundreds of damp yet determined runners at the 14th Annual Westborough Spring Festival 5K Road Race, presented by the Rotary Club of Westborough.

Within the past three years, SCPT has donated more than 200 bottles of water to support Rotary Race participants in their pursuit of the finish line at Westborough High School, located at 90 West Main St., Westborough.

“Hydration is always key to a runner’s performance – before, during and after a big race. At SCPT, we encourage all runners, from novices to veterans, to monitor their water intake. Maintaining proper hydration can prevent cramps, regulate body temperature, and lubricate your joints to help prevent overuse injuries,” said SCPT Executive Director Eric Cardin. “It is our pleasure to support the Rotary Club of Westborough and all who participated in the Road Race.”

This year, SCPT’s offerings weren’t the only things that were wet, as rain clouds lingered during the annual Westborough Spring Festival weekend. Ongoing precipitation made the hilly course throughout Westborough even more challenging for runners.

“This year’s weather conditions required runners to rely on their training to push through and perform carefully to avoid injuries. At SCPT, we customize training programs for runners of all levels to meet their goals and to anticipate unexpected challenges along the course,” Cardin added. “Practice makes progress, and with training, unavoidable obstacles like weather can be managed.”

In addition to the 5K Road Race, the Westborough Spring Festival featured live music, local eats, and family- and pet- friendly events, including a new Food Truck Festival.

SCPT offers six convenient locations throughout Central Massachusetts, and is recognized for providing the highest quality of personalized and rehabilitative orthopedic and sports physical therapy care for 30 years.
