Race Information

The Parkway Running Club (PRC) has hosted an annual 5K road race since 1994. Since 2004 PRC renamed its road race “Walter’s Run” in memory of a special friend and member Walter Burgess. 

The 5K race will begin at West Roxbury YMCA, Bellevue Street. Water stop, mile splits and course security will be provided with the help of volunteers and police. Female participants will be provided a separate registration table. Runners are invited to a post race party at the Irish Social Club.

This event also includes a Little Kids 1K race as per tradition. All participating kids, ages 10 and under, are awarded candy canes and ribbons to encourage them to participate in physical activities.

So sign up for this exciting run and become a part of this long standing winter tradition of West Roxbury.
