Along with the races, enjoy a fall family festival featuring food trucks, kids’ fun runs, the Medford Family Network, Knucklebones, a chance to check out a Medford firetruck, scavenger hunts, informal trail walks, and more.

We’re also happy to announce that we will have a beer garden for the 21&over crowd. Medford Brew Company will be pouring the brews! Come by and relax with a post-run beer.

The event begins directly behind Medford High School (489 Winthrop Street in Medford) at noon.  The 5K starts directly at 1 p.m., the 10k starts at 2 p.m, and the Fun Run begins at 2:05.
