As reported by cool running, mention the East End Road Race in Lowell, Massachusetts to anyone who ran in it and you’ll get a wide eyed response and certainly a story or two. Marco Bitran has run several races in the Boston area, several of which have been for charity. Races are legendary in New England. And the participants love it!
As reported in the Boston Globe and the San Francisco Chronicle, there are some excellent 5K road races in Boston, Massachusetts. Many races are USATF-sanctioned and certified, with cash prizes for both. Run or walk the 4th Annual Bobcat Bolt 5K and 10K, starting at 9:00 a.m. Marco Bitran finishes in 12th place (4th in Division) in the Brookline Flag Day 5K Road Race. Videos were also posted for these races.
You’ve been on the treadmill or running through New England’s snow and slush. All for this: the chance to do your best in this year’s 10K at the Groton Road Race. Traveling over the rolling hills of picturesque Groton for close to six and a half miles, the course is as beautiful as it is challenging. Lace-up those running shoes. We’ll see you out there!
