This weekend over 1000 runners and walkers will gather in Winchester to take part in the 7th annual 5/10k road race in aid of the Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation. The race is open to adult and children and you can register online or on the day. The race starts at 12 pm at the Jenks Center in the heart of Winchester and follows a loop past Winchester High School, along Palmer Street through the Flats neighborhood, and back down Church Street through the town center, passing the commuter rail station and the town common. You can see the exact route here. 10k racers will complete the loop twice. Stick around for the post-race party at Winchester Town Hall!
We are proud to be sponsors of this race honoring Glen Doherty, a Winchester native and a former Navy SEAL. Glen was one of the four Americans killed in a terror attack in Benghazi, Libya in 2012. The memorial foundation set up in his name helps current and former special operations personnel transition to civilian life, and also helps the children and families of these professionals. Funds that are raised through the Road Race and other events go to provide scholarships, grants and gifts to these individuals and families. Learn more about the foundation and its work here.
This Saturday we are thrilled to be part of Arlington MA’s Town Day Celebrations! The event kicks off with the Walter V. Moynihan Town Day Run, starting at 8:30 am from in front of Arlington High School and following a 2.7-mile loop. Adults and kids are all welcome to take part, you can pay the $20 entrance fee ahead of time at Arlington Recreation Department or on the day at the event itself from 7:30 am.
This 43rd annual event will be officially opened by a flag-raising at 9:30 am. Mass Ave will be closed to traffic between Pleasant St and Jason St for the street fair with over 200 booths. Local businesses will have arts and crafts, games, prize giveaways and other fun events for the whole family.
Bands will be performing on the Center Stage throughout the day, including the High School Jazz Band, The Dave Sammarco Band and the Arlington Cheerleaders. The Town Garden will be home to activities including face painting, a birds of prey display and a performance from Ben Rudnick and Friends.

Step inside 2 Mill Road, Woburn MA and you’ll immediately notice how bright and spacious it is. The triple windows in the living room let in so much light and set off the fireplace with its unique river-rock surround. The dining room is open to the kitchen, perfect for entertaining, with gas stove, brand new appliances, quartzite countertops and ample cabinets. During the warmer months you can bring the entertainment outside, as the kitchen leads out directly onto a new porch and patio set in a large level backyard.
Up the central staircase you’ll find 3 bedrooms including a master, a full bath and plenty of storage. There is a further full bathroom on the first floor and an additional room that could be used as a home office or made into a fourth bedroom.
This home has been renovated from top to bottom so the new owners will benefit from new heating, cooling and electrical systems, as well as the brand-new kitchen and bathrooms.
Conveniently located in a lovely neighborhood in Woburn, Mass., you’ll have easy access to I93 and I95 whether you are commuting or heading on a weekend escape.
