Celebrate with a Boston Thanksgiving Tradition

Event Canceled

Due to the forecast of frigid weather and wind chill in the negative numbers at race time, organizers have made the difficult decision to cancel the Boston Volvo Thanksgiving Day 5K set for tomorrow. Safety is our top priority, and we want to ensure everyone connected to the event has a positive experience.

The Boston Volvo Thanksgiving Day 5K presented locally by Boston Volvo Village is a 5K run for everyone! Come be a part of this awesome event and help change the world for people with MS.

The event includes a tee shirt for the first 700 runners to register, prizes for the top run finishes, fundraising prizes, and is a chip-timed, USATF-certified course.

Online registration will close at 11:59pm on Sunday, November 18.

See you at the start line!
