The second annual Race to the Row 5k will take place Sunday, Aug. 24, at Assembly Row in Somerville’s Assembly Square District.
The race through Somerville’s newest neighborhood will provide a tour of the new outlets, apartments, restaurants, T station and courtyard at Assembly Row. Running around and through the development and along the Mystic River, the race will end with a free, outdoor pizza party and the opportunity for participants to have a front row view of the recently opened development.
The race is for runners of all ages and skill levels, offering a Children’s Fun Run in addition to the 5k race/walk. The Children’s Fun Run will begin at 9 a.m. The 5k race/walk will commence at 9:30 a.m. All registered runners will have access to the post-race party and receive pizza from Ernesto’s Pizza and ice cream from J.P. Licks, which both have locations at Assembly Row.
The 2014 Women’s Football Association champions, Somerville’s own Boston Militia, will be at Patriot Place tonight to perform the coin toss of the final home preseason game at 7:30. Show your support!
Held at the absolutely gorgeous, fresh off its centennial Somerville Theater on the evening of September 18th, it will feature performances by Boston Comedy Festival winner Dan Boulger, the eye-popping aerials of Esh Circus Acts, the funk soul brotherhood of The Nephrok Allstars, folk mastery by Paddy Saul and much, much, more. Plus, a chance to meet your Scout’s Honor’s winners up close and personal.
If that wasn’t enough, the after-party is down the street at Cusine en Locale, and will feature food, drink and dancing till dawn. Tickets are extremely limited, so grab them now, either here, or on that banner to the right.
See you there!
