The race’s 39 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.
