Worcester Night Run

  • Burncoat High School 179 Burncoat Street Worcester, MA, 01606 (map)

Please join us for the 3rd annual Worcester Night Run 5k to benefit TSY Teacher and friend Erin Coonan Schmidt.  

A note from Erin: 

I have been living with breast cancer for eight years.  I can safely say the only blessing from this experience is that it brought me to yoga and to all of you. Without my tribe, my mat, and your support I know this journey of surviving and thriving wouldn't be possible!

I invite you to be part of our Thames Street Yoga running team! Show your team spirit by running the race, purchasing a Thames Street Yoga tank top from Long Time Sun, or making an donation. All proceeds and sales go directly towards my medical expenses. 

Can't join the race?  I'm excited to announce the Erin Coonan Schmidt Scholarship for Health and Wellness, a fund I've establish to support students looking to enhance their own well-being or their community (future yoga teachers!) See below for details.


The Worcester Night Run is a family-friendly community event and Worcester's only nighttime road race. Runners and walkers of all abilities are encouraged to participate in this unique event which raises money to support our friend Erin Coonan Schmidt in her battle against cancer. The 5k road race will begin and end at Burncoat High School in Worcester, MA.


Race fees and online donations received through will help offset Erin’s medical expenses as she continues her fight.  If you are unable to attend the run, please consider donating.



We are also fundraising to establish a perpetual scholarship in Erin’s name, through the Greater Worcester Community Foundation, to be awarded annually to a graduating student-athlete from Burncoat High School who is looking to pursue a position in the Health and Wellness field.
