Super Sunday

Sunday Feb. 5th, 2017 – Kendall Square, Cambridge

5-Mile Race: $3,100 cash purse for top 10 overall men and women. 5K race starts 12 minutes after the 5M race. Both races share the same finish line. As always, Super Sunday will have a HUGE post-race party. We’ll have thousands of craft beers for you along with hot food from Miller’s Ale House and kick-ass music from BearFight and DJ Phoenix. New this year, the three largest teams get your own Bustonian with a private stash of beer for the afterparty! Plus, you can warm up before and after the race in Genzyme’s beautiful lobby! Not running? Lucky for you, guest tickets can be purchased during the registration process. (so find a runner!)
