Since 1998, Boston Volvo has sponsored a 5k Road Race on Thanksgiving morning.
The sense of community that accompanies the festivities is wonderfully palpable, with 1000+ runners pre-burning Thanksgiving calories and then gathering after for coffee, snacks, and assorted goodies. Early entrants receive long-sleeved t-shirts, many versions of which you will see daily on the backs of dedicated runners throughout the Greater Boston area and beyond.
The Boston Volvo 5k supports the New England Chapter of the National MS Society, and their dedication and expertise helps us stage one of the area's most successful pre-turkey trots. Our course is chip-timed, USATF-certified, flat & fast through the streets of Allston/Brighton.
Please join us - we welcome racers, runners, joggers, walkers, kids & adults!
