Jennifer Tinney July 4th Road Race

Set in the historic East Boxford Village, the 28th annual Jennifer Tinney Memorial 4th of July Road Race is a popular 5 mile competitive event. The course is USATF certified. Age group categories include 2-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60 plus.

In addition to the 5 mile race we also offer the Boxford Mile which is also USA Track and Field certified..  Age groups include 2-8, 9-12, 13-15, 16-18, 19-39 (Open), 40+.(Masters).  Course starts on Elm Street, right on Main Street, right on Middleton and finishes back at the intersection of Elm.

We are changing the 5K race to 2.5 miles so we can start and stop at the same location of the 5 mile race.

Non-runners are invited to participate in a 2.5 mile Walk For Fitness.  Awards are presented to top age group finishers in the 5 Mile Run and Boxford Mile.  The 5 Mile Run, 2.5 Mile Run and Walk For Fitness start at 8:00 a.m.   The 1 Mile Run starts at 8:05.
Proceeds are directed to the Jennifer Tinney Scholarship Fund at Masconomet High School.

The race is usually followed by a parade, barbecue, and fun activities for the family.
