The Moody Street 5K is an annual road race whose proceeds benefit students at the Waltham Secondary Public Schools (Kennedy Middle, McDevitt Middle and Waltham High Schools). The funds are earmarked to provide programs that encourage active lifestyles and healthy living as well as provide scholarships for graduating seniors.
Participation and friendly competition from all Waltham schools is encouraged as well as the running community with prizes awarded for top finishers in age brackets, recognition of top finishers in each school, and more!
The race begins on the Moody St bridge running south the length of Moody Street through downtown Waltham and past some of the best restaurants/shops in Greater Boston before traveling around the Island and finishing along the scenic Charles River back to Moody St. Along the way, you'll see beautiful scenery and hear cheers from the spectators who come out to watch!
Post race fun and awards, where all are welcomed, for party and refreshments will be at Shoppers on Moody St.
