The Moody Street 5K is a 3.1 mile road race that benefits the secondary public schools in Waltham, Massachusetts. The race begins and ends on iconic Moody Street. The course starts on the Moody St. bridge over the Charles River and heads south down Moody St. and takes a right hand turn on Crescent St. and into the Southside neighborhood. The route turns left on Woerd Avenue, then left on Riverview Avenue with a loop around the Island. As you exit the island, the race turns left into the boat ramp parking lot, entering the Riverwalk behind the Watch Factory along the Charles River. (Please use caution as you exit the Watch Factory as there is a high curb drop when you turn left onto Prospect Street). The route then turns right, back onto the scenic DCR Landy Park Riverwalk, and right onto Moody Street, finishing in front of Embassy Park to throngs of adoring fans.
Post race fun will be at Shopper's Cafe with an awards ceremony (time TBD).
