    Kick-Off The Holidays at the Cambridge 5K - Yulefest

    Long before Christmas, there was a quirky winter festival named "Yule" that people really loved. Join us on December 18th at 10:00am for a 5K race that takes the holidays back to their old school roots! This5K course and a great post-race party is sponsored by Clover Food Lab, Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project, Notch Session Ale & Peak Organic.

    The race benefits Cambridge Family & Children's Services and features a fast & flat (US Track & Field certified).

    Registration is $38 and includes a stylish race shirt and admission to the post-race Yule Party on Holyoke St. 
    Run the race in your most creative "holiday-wear" and you could win a prize at our post-race party. The Yule Party (21+) will feature an awesome mix of “chilled-out” hip hop and electronica music.
    Space is limited and the race will sell out! Register soon!
