5K Run/1 Mile Walk registration open

The 8th annual Charles River Center 5K Run/1 Mile Walk is a fun family event that is scheduled for Sunday, September 23, at 11:00 a.m. The USA Track and Field-certified course begins and ends at the Charles River Center, 59 East Militia Heights Drive, Needham, and loops through the scenic back roads of Wellesley and Needham. Runners and walkers of all abilities are welcome. Free tee-shirts are given to the first 300 entrants. Participants (nearly 600 in years past) enjoy food, drinks and festivities after the run.

Proceeds for the event will benefit the more than 950 children and adults with developmental disabilities, including autism and Down syndrome, supported by the Charles River Center. Sponsorship opportunities are available.

There are reduced fees now during early registration until August 31. Fees will increase for regular registration from September 1 until the day of the 5K Run/1Mile Walk on September 23.
