The 3.1-mile Run for Jacob will be hosted Sept. 12 at 8:30 a.m. by the Roxbury road race series.

The race is named for Jacob Lewis of Warren, the nephew of Bob Lewis of New Milford, the series' director since 1986. Proceeds will benefit resources related to children with autism.

A $5 fee will be payable from 7:15 to 8:20 at Hurlburt Community Park on West Apple Lane, near the race's start and finish.

The course will start on the park's track and follow Rocky Mountain and Hemlock roads before returning to the park.
