From the City of Cambridge, March 10, 2017: The Cambridge City Run is a flat, fast, 5k run and walking course – billed as Henrietta’s Walk – along the picturesque footpaths of Danehy Park, with signup proceeds benefiting college scholarships for Cambridge Rindge and Latin School student athletes and the Andrea Harvey Fund to provide scholarships and raise awareness of domestic violence.

Though this is the 31st annual City Run, it has a new course and distance within Danehy Park.

The race takes place at 10:30 a.m. April 2 at Danehy Park, 99 Sherman St., in the Avon Hill neighborhood just east of Fresh Pond.

The advance race fee is $30, or $20 for students and free for people under 18. On the day of the race the fees rise to $40, or $25 for students. Race T-shirts will be distributed to the first 500 registered participants.

Parking is off-street, at lots on New Street, Blanchard Road and Field Street.

The event is sponsored by Friends of Cambridge Athletics, the City of Cambridge and Marathon Sports. For information, contact race director Sean McDonnell by email at [email protected] or by visiting
