Mystic River Herring Run and Paddle
Saturday, May 20 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm$25 - $35
CACHE member the Mystic River Watershed Association invites you its 21st Mystic River Herring Run and Paddle, an annual fundraiser to celebrate the Mystic River and the migrating herring! The event consists of a 5K run/walk race, three paddling races (3, 9, and 12 miles), a bicycle tour, educational booths, children’s activities, music, and more. All events originate at the DCR Blessing of the Bay Boathouse in Somerville, but large portions of the 5K and paddling courses, and the bicycle tour, take place in Medford (including Mystic Riverbend Park, MacDonald Park, and the Park and River’s Edge).
