2015 JB Blastoff 5K Run/Walk

The Mission of the JB Blastoff 5k Run/Walk is to raise funds to fight brain cancer and ease its effects on patients and families by providing critical support services monies for brain cancer research.  The event is 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 in Waltham with chip timing provided by RaceWire and 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!

Parking is limited -- Please respect Walgreen's customers and only park in the JB Blastoff designated parking areas located at Watertown Savings Bank and The Gore Estate (and many thanks to both organizations for their generous support!).   

Online registration closes Friday march 27.  Bib pick up is Saturday March 28 from 1-3 p.m. at John Brewers or 9-10:15 a.m. on race day.  In-person registrations accepted Saturday and Sunday with a $5 fee.  Thanks to all who make this event a success!
