Running Through the Holidays in Central Massachusetts

Running Through the Holidays in Central Massachusetts

The temperatures this month have been unusually mild.  It is not especially favorable for skiers, but runners across the state are happy to have the opportunity to delay moving to indoor running.  Many clubs are hosting holiday runs, from 5K to 10K to 50K.  A list of such races that are being held in Central Massachusetts is below. Pick a race and go get in a great holiday run!
