The Roxbury road race series has rescheduled its debut race for Saturday, Feb. 23, at 8:30 a.m. with a 2.4-mile run featuring a trip up the steep hill on Chalybes Road. There will be no entry fee.

The 37-race series was set to open last weekend but Saturday's event was postponed due to inclement weather.

The series will host a race every Saturday through Dec. 7 with the exception of July 27, the day of New Milford's 8-mile and Village Fair Days 5K races.

The Roxbury races generally start and finish near Hurlburt Community Park on Apple Lane. They are sanctioned by the Roxbury Recreation Commission.
