Mural Mile Road Race

Mural Mile @ the intersection of art + wellness |  9 am - Saturday, May 6th

We’re thrilled to invite you to the first annual Mural Mile Road Race and Kids Dash.  The Greater Framingham Running Club and the Framingham Downtown Renaissance have joined forces to bring you this robust community-building and placemaking celebration. 

As an official ArtWeek Boston event, this race underscores physical well-being and participatory art in the newly minted Downtown Framingham. 

Registration proceeds sustain the Rich and Chris Chesmore Scholarship, which provides financial support for high school runners as they advance into higher education.

Race down the art-filled Mural Mile or 200 meter dash.  After the race, get immersed in live music, interactive painting, local vendors and new friends in the Deluxe Depot Diner Parking Lot.
