Description

 

24th Annual Somerville Homeless Coalition 5K Road Race. 

Please note there is a change of location and date: detoured to Arlington on Sunday, October 6th!

2019 sees some exciting changes to our annual road race- we're taking one of the many detours across Somerville and landing in Arlington. Come and join us, as year 24 sees us gather at the Back of Arlington High School and the start/finish line will be located on Mill Brook Drive. 

The 5K starts on Millbrook Dr in Arlington, MA and quickly turns right on Mill St, followed by another quick right on Mass Ave. The race continues on Mass Ave for over a mile until a right turn on Lowell St. At the five-way intersection, the course turns sharply right on Bow St. Just past Taylor Rental, runners enter the Minuteman Bikeway and continue on the path until Mill St. A quick right on Mill St and right on Millbrook Dr. leads runners back to the finish area.
