The 5k road race goes through the heart of Braintree. The mostly flat course starts at historic Braintree Town Hall, passing through South Braintree Square, near Sunset Lake, up Franklin St to Five Corners before heading up the hill on West St and back to Washington Street to Town Hall. And yes, we added an extra loop around the Town Hall Drive to get it to 5k.
First male and first female runners to complete the 5k course win $100. Trophies will be awarded to 1st, 2nd & 3rd place male and female runners under age 12 for both the 5k and 1 mile course, as well as for top male and female teen 5k finishers. 1st through 3rd place 1 mile finishers age 5 and under will receive trophies.
