Freedom Run 5K

9:30AM EDT


Following the guidelines of state and local officials, the Freedom Run 5K at CambridgeSide will be postponed to a later date. We will work with city officials to explore alternative dates later this summer or fall.

Thank you for your patience as we work through this process.  Once a new date has been determined and plans are finalized, we will be back in touch. If a new date is not possible and the 2020 event needs to be canceled, you will have the option of applying your registration fee towards a future CambridgeSide event or receiving a refund.

The race starts & finishes at CambridgeSide and is immediately followed by a festive roof deck party.
