Dear Friends, Runners, Sponsors, Colleagues, Rivals!

Firms - Please send runners to compete for the OACB Concrete Cup for tiered donations of $1000-Platinum, $750-Gold and $500-Silver. Donations are tax deductible and made to the BSA Foundation for the OACBoston 5K. Please email [email protected] for details on registering teams as a sponsoring firm.

Individual runners can register at: with a $20 donation and the first 100 will receive a non-sweatshop race t-shirt, post-race refreshments, and be eligible for age group winner and raffle prizes. Registration will also be available at the race on race day.

The race proceeds this year will be used for a BSA committee initiative for a recovery project in Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria which devastated the Island one year ago.
