First Monday Arlington 5K Fun Run 

Monday Night 5K Fun Run Moves to Arlington

Weekly 7:00pm Group Run Hosted by Somerville 
Road Runners (SRR) and Fitness First Health 
Club, 471 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington. Free
parking in the municipal lot behind the club
and on the street. Also accessible via the 
67 and 79 buses from Alewife and the 77 from
Harvard Square.

We had a warm evening for our first Arlington
run. After gathering at Fitness First, we walked
across the street to the bike path next to 
Carberry's. Twenty yard up, there is a dirt path
that leads to the streets that surround the Boys' 
and Girls' Club playing fields. We run around these
fields, then onto the bike path and down to the 
gates at Alewife. We turn and then run back to the 
end of the bike path by Carberry's -- we don't go 
around the fields again. We've measured this route 
twice on a GPS, and it appears to be 3.1 miles

We also run 4.13 miles from Khoury's in Somerville on
Thursday nights, as we have for the last nine years.
Always free, this race typically draws 20 to 60 runners
and is known as an excellent hang, with food and drink
available afterwards in the pub.
