The Boston Firefighters Local 718 Memorial Road Race was established to memorialize the brave members of the Boston Fire Department and Local 718 who courageously gave their lives while fulfilling their duty for the citizens of Boston.

Race day is a celebration of their lives, while raising money for several local charities, funding scholarships and also providing a great running event enjoyed by generations and supported by local establishments. Rain or shine, runners and volunteers come from all around to join together in the names of fallen firefighters and to run a scenic 10k race around Dorchester Bay, then enjoy a couple hours of trophy and prize giveaways. Everyone is welcome and a great time is had by all. Please join us for the fun on October 19, 2014 at 9:00am, and see why over 1000 runners keep coming back year after year! This year we dedicate the Firefighters 10K to our fallen heroes Lieutenant Edward J. Walsh Jr. and Firefighter Michael R. Kennedy.

About the Race:

A 10k (6.2 miles) USATF certified course that is fast and flat, with a great ocean view, strict course security, and electronic timing with mile splits. Water stops are available along the course. Plenty of free parking is available for the race.

Entertainment:

The Fenian Sons

For ten years now The Fenian Sons have been delivering traditional Irish music with a "today sound" to the New England area. Having started at 16 as schoolmates in a small kitchen in Roslindale, MA, The Fenian Sons have grown into one of Boston's most lively and well known Irish bands. The "Sons" as they are sometimes called, have put a more energetic twist but have held fast to the tradtional tunes made famous by The Wolfe Tones, Clancy Brothers and Paddy Reilly to name a few. With their first cd "Live" under their belt, and their latest studio recording "Uphill Fight" they indeed are making their mark everywhere. // View band site
