Neighborhood News: The Boston Common Costume Dash 5K

costume dashWhat better way to start your Halloween morning than with a 5K dressed up in an awesome costume! Sponsored by Bostons very own Harpoon Brewery, this race is a great opportunity to be able to run through downtown Boston and have some fun at the same time.

The race will start at Copley Square and 3,000 participants will run through the beautiful Boston Common, to then hit the finish line near the corner of Beacon Street and Charles Street. Not only is this a reason to get yourself up and going by doing a 5K but it is also a reason to put on your best costume and even try to win special prizes and swag after the race by competing in the costume contest. Once the race is over, the fun continues with parties at Beantown Pub, The Pour House, The Rattlesnake, and Barracuda Tavern.

Not only is the race a fun way to spend your Halloween morning, but by participating in the dash you are helping support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay as well.
