The Cambridge CityRun 5-Mile Road Race and Henrietta’s 3-Mile Fun Walk is a popular rite of spring that attracts over 1,200 runners and walkers annually and has been named one of the top 75 road races in New England by the prestigious New England Runner magazine.
Two miles into the race, this scenic, flat, tree-lined course runs along the perimeter of the Fresh Pond Reservoir - away from cars and distractions. The race has been measured and certified by the officials at the U.S.A.T.F.
Thanks to the support of our sponsors, proceeds from the event will benefit Friends of Cambridge Athletics (FOCA), the Andrea Harvey Memorial Fund and the Recreation Division Cambridge Program.
FOCA, in its 16th year at CRLS, is a volunteer non-profit parent organization that strives to improve the character and discipline of young teens through sports activities. The organization has supported and introduced new sports such as Crew, Gymnastics, Girls Hockey, Wrestling and Lacrosse.
The Andrea Harvey Memorial Fund is dedicated to a former Cambridge resident and teacher at East Boston High School who was a tragic victim of domestic abuse. These funds help provide college scholarships to students from Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School.
The Cambridge Program is designed to enhance the lives of its clients by providing quality programs that are geared to promote self-esteem, encourage social interaction and increase physical well being. A main goal of the program is to help create for individuals with a range of needs, an empathetic community through care, respect and understanding of differences.
