Esplanade 5K Presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts

Sunday, August 29, 2021

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2021 Esplanade 5K Presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts on August 29!

The Esplanade 5K Presented bay Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts takes place along most popular route in Greater Boston! This course takes an unparalleled riverfront route with both water and garden views set against the iconic backdrop of the Boston and Cambridge skylines. The finish line is perfectly photogenic, with passing sailboats on the Charles River.

Proceeds from this race directly support the work of the Esplanade Association to revitalize and enhance the Charles River Esplanade, sustain its natural green space, and build community in the park by providing educational, cultural, and recreational programs for everyone.

We hope to see you in spring 2022 when the Esplanade 5K Presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield returns to our beloved park! 2022 5K date TBD. Stay tuned with all Esplanade events and programs at Esplanade.org/Events.
