Announcing a series of monthly low-key 5 Kilometer racewalks to be held on Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM. The racewalks alternate between Danehy Park in Cambridge Massachusetts (behind the Fresh Pond Mall) and in Brookline Massachusetts on the Muddy River (by Route 9 near Brookline Village.)

Danehy Park

Directions: From route 128 take route 2 east to the end, then bear right onto route 16 (Fresh Pond Parkway). Pass the Alewife T station on your right and continue on 16 over a bridge to a sign on the right for Fresh Pond Mall. Take a right and follow that road around to the right and under the underpass until you see the Loew's Cinema in front of you and Staples to your right. The entrance to the park is to the right of the cinema, directly behind Staples. Drive over the railroad track and go left into the parking lot. Park there and walk up the hill into Danehy Park. We meet at the picnic bench on the right side of the track.

From the Boston area, take Storrow or Memorial Drive to Fresh Pond Parkway and continue to the rotary and then to the mall. Staples is at the far left, and Danehy Park is behind Staples.
