The Somerville Road Runners are proud to present the second annual Race to the Row 5K in Assembly Square in our hometown of Somerville, MA. It's both a run and a walk and is open to runners and families of all ages and abilities. There will be a Children's Fun Run (age 9 and under) before the race with all kids getting a medal!

The Race to the Row will run through the Assembly Square District and along the Mystic River, ending with a fun-filled post-race party with food and drinks served from the newest local restaurants and live music supplied by the IT Band! All proceeds will benefit the East Somerville Main Streets program (funding East Somerville business visibility and bolstering the community at large) as well as Somerville TrackPAC (provides college scholarships for Somerville High School students).

Early registrants will receive a race t-shirt, and all paid registrants will get free food and drinks afterward! But all runners, walkers and members of the cheering crowds can participate in the post-race festivities. There will be an awards ceremony following the race for top finishers in Mens and Womens divisions.

There will be plenty of more details to come as Assembly Row grows and new businesses and restaurants start opening their doors!



Registration for this event is $25 before Patriots' Day (April 21), and $30 afterward, which includes a t-shirt if you sign up by August 1. On the day of the race, registration increases to $35. You can pre-register for both the 5K Run and 5K Walk at RaceMenu until Saturday, August 23 at 10:00pm. You do not need to pre-register for the Children's Fun Run. Simply show up before the race and fill out the registration form.

There will also be day-of sign-up at the event starting at 8:00am. Those who pre-register will be able to pick up their packet early at the Adidas Outlet Store in Assembly Row on Saturday, August 23 from noon until 4:00pm. In order to do the early pick-up, you must register online no later than 9:00am on Saturday, August 23. Those who register after that time will only be able to pick up their packets on Sunday at the event starting at 8:00am.

The course is a measured 5K that winds through and around Assembly Square in Somerville. You will start in the the tree-lined Grand Boulevard, catching a preview of the new downtown area going up. Almost the full route is on roads, with the final stretch coming down the paved path through the waterfront park. You can view the 5K course here. The exact starting and finishing lines may still be adjusted.
