Spectacle Island 5K & Fun Run

Join us for the 9th annual Spectacle Island 5K and Fun Run!

Enjoy panoramic views of Boston Harbor and the city skyline as you race around Spectacle Island’s scenic perimeter trail. Festivities feature a 5K Race, a half-mile Kids Fun Run, picnic lunch for participants, music, a beer ticket, and kids’ activities. Ferry departures are available from both downtown Boston and Hingham Shipyard.

All proceeds from the Spectacle Island 5K help support free and equitable access to Boston Harbor and Islands, and help enrich the lives of 40,000 youth and their families.
