Runners from around the Commonwealth will join family and friends of the late Boston City Councilor Brian Honan for the Brian J. Honan 5K Road Race presented by New Balance on Sunday, September 20th at 12 noon. Funds raised from the event will benefit scholarship funds for the Allston Board of Trade and the Brighton Board of Trade. The race also benefits the Brian J. Honan Charitable Fund which has fostered local and national programs that support education, recreation, housing and healthcare.
Covering just over 3 miles of Allston-Brighton, the family-friendly run/walk will welcome everyone including competitive runners to families with strollers. The race begins at The Kells at 161 Brighton Avenue (near the intersection of Harvard Avenue and Brighton Avenue) at noon and everyone is encouraged to return to the host restaurant and pub just as the annual Allston-Brighton parade kicks off from Packard’s Corner in Allston.
