JB Blastoff 5K Run/Walk

The Mission JB Blastoff 5k Run/Walk has been created to raise monies for brain cancer research in memory of Joseph Basile who passed away from a Glioblastoma brain tumor in 2005. Glioblastoma is the most common and most aggressive form of primary brain cancer.  The race starts and finishes at John Brewer's Tavern, 39 Main Street in Waltham.  Chip timing provided by RaceWire with prizes to top male/female finishers plus various age categories. We're once again proud to be part of the Race Around Waltham (RAW) Series which encourages participation in all Waltham races and tracks runners, walkers and volunteers for prizes. Party and refreshments post-race at John Brewer's. Runners and walkers welcome -- tell your friends and bring the kids!
