Jennifer Tinney July 4th Road Race

The Boxford Athletic Association is excited to announce the 30th Annual 2021 Boxford July 4th Road Race supporting the Jennifer Tinney Memorial Scholarship fund will be held Sunday July 4th, 2021!  

Participants have the choice of a 5-miles, 2.5-miles, or 1-mile fun run in-person on our USATF certified course set in the historic East Boxford Village OR the option for the same distances completed virtually.   Due to Covid safety guidelines, race protocols will include a staggered rolling start to encourage social distancing, social distancing at registration and the start/finish line, hand sanitizer will be readily available, and face mask recommendations for anyone who prefers wearing one. To further encourage social distancing, there will NOT be an awards ceremony following the race, but race times will be available online. 


**This year we will have a special treat courtesy of a Benson’s Homemade Ice Cream!

Everyone 16 and under who is registered by June 30th AND the overall fastest 5 mile and 2.5 mile male and female participant will receive a gift certificate for Benson’s Ice Cream!
