Dorchester Star - - Regional -

CAM­BRIDGE — The Dorch­ester Fam­ily YMCA’s sev­enth an­nual Crab Run, a fundraiser to the Y’s sum­mer youth camp, will be held Satur­day, April 2, at YMCA at 201 Tal­bot Ave.

The Y’s pro­grams and ser­vices are open to all through their fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance pro­grams made pos­si­ble through the gen­eros­ity of their mem­bers, hon­ors and part­ners. The Crab Run is one of sev­eral spe­cial events that helps the YMCA help oth­ers.

Run­ners can choose be­tween a King Crab Chal­lenge, half marathon or 5K. The King Crab Chal­lenge and half marathon starts at 7:30 a.m. and the 5K starts at 9:30 a.m.

The King Crab Chal­lenge gives run­ners a chance to com­plete the 13.1 mile half marathon in two hours, and then run in the 5K. King Crab par­tic­i­pates will re­ceive a spe­cial long-sleeve tech t-shirt, as well as the half marathon fin­ish­ing medal.

The Crab Run half marathon du­pli­cates the run course of the Ea­gle­man triathlon held in Cam­bridge each year. Run­ners of all abil­i­ties can en­joy the fast, flat, fun and beau­ti­ful course.

The 5K course takes run­ners and walk­ers of all ages along the banks of the Chop­tank River and around the his­toric city of Cam­bridge.

The events all be­gin and end at the Dorch­ester Fam­ily YMCA. Aid sta­tions will be pro­vided for both events and a se­lec­tion of healthy treats await the fin­ish­ers.

Check-in will be at the Dorch­ester Fam­ily YMCA from 5 to 8 p.m. Fri­day, April 1, and be­gin at 6 a.m. Satur­day un­til 15 min­utes prior to each event. There will be prizes awarded for best cos­tume at 7 a.m.
