About This Event
The race’s 40 year history began as a certified 5.2-mile race in the town of Holliston and was held on the second Thursday in July. The race stayed in Holliston for a few years before moving to Wellesley and the third Thursday in July. After 17 years in Wellesley, the race found a new home at Weston High School. A local fan favorite for its road, track, and trail course, the Marathon Sports 5-Miler is the perfect midsummer classic.
The highly coveted Marathon Sports 5-Miler race t-shirt is a technical top courtesy of our friends and cosponsors Brooks. The first 700 runners to register are guaranteed a shirt, and any leftover t-shirts after the race (unlikely) will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis to those who did not receive one.
Start Time
The race will start promptly at 7:00PM on Thursday evening.

COED Team Challenge

If a team doesn't have at least 2 people from each gender on their team, they will not be scored. Registration costs $30 per team member until July 4th and $35 after(Team entry will be prompted at the beginning of registration. Each person will pay separately), so grab some friends and get ready to throw down in and old fashioned cross country ramble.
100% of the profits this year and in years past go to our friends over at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, in their noble quest to fight blood cancers.
