Jim Kane Sugar Bowl 5K Road Race

Thu, 07/17/2014 - 7:00pm

The L Street Running Club will host the 27th running of the Jim Kane Sugar Bowl 5K road race on July 17 at 7 pm. The course runs along Day Boulevard, from the roadway leading into the Boston Teacher’s Union, to P Street, and back to the Union hall.

All proceeds from the race go to local charities including the Boys & Girls Club of South Boston, Dorchester and Charlestown, The Curley Community Center, The South Boston Collaborative, Children’s Hospital, Father Bill’s Homeless Shelter, and St Francis’ Homeless shelter. Proceeds also allow LSRC to provide funding for Cushing Manor’s Christmas Party, Christmas in the City, and 50 Christmas Baskets, which the club members distribute to needy families in the local area.

Day Boulevard will be closed for a short time on the evening of the 17th (from 6:55 pm to 7:30 pm), but no cars will be towed or mandated to be off the streets for this race. Runners will park at Carson Place or the UMASS parking lot, or they will come by train; they should not take residential parking places.
