Races in Boston, Oct 23/24?

Post by Joseph A. McVei » Mon, 20 Sep 1993 23:14:49


I'll be in Boston Oct 21-24, and I could *really* use a race that weekend
(I'm preparing for the NYC Marathon). Anyone know of any races? In an ideal
world there's one between 5mi & half-marathon, but any race will be great.

Thanks in advance.
