The Boston Firefighters Local 718 10K Memorial Road Race was established to memorialize the brave members of the Boston Fire Department and Local 718 who courageously gave their lives while fulfilling their duty for the citizens of Boston.

Race day is a celebration of their lives, while raising money for several local charities, funding scholarships and also providing a great running event enjoyed by generations and supported by local establishments. Rain or shine, runners and volunteers come from all around to join together in the names of fallen firefighters and to run a scenic 10K race around Dorchester Bay, then enjoy a couple hours of trophy and prize giveaways. Everyone is welcome and a great time is had by all. Please join us for the 34th Annual Boston Firefighters Local 718 10K Memorial Road Race on October 16, 2016 at 9:00 AM, and see why over 1,000 runners keep coming back year after year!

Entertainment

The Fenian SonsSince 1996 The Fenian Sons have been delivering traditional Irish music with a “today sound” to the New England area. Having started at 16 as schoolmates in a small kitchen in Roslindale, MA, The Fenian Sons have grown into one of Boston’s most lively and well known Irish bands. The “Sons,” as they are sometimes called, put on a more energetic twist but have held fast to the traditional tunes made famous by The Wolfe Tones, Clancy Brothers and Paddy Reilly to name a few. With their first CD “Live” under their belt and their studio recordings “Uphill Fight” and “617,” they indeed are making their mark everywhere.

Firehouse Challenge

Exciting news for all firefighters participating in the 10K Road Race – the Boston Firehouse and the Visiting Fire Department with the lowest combined time of its top 3 finishers will win a trophy and a $300 cash prize!
