With only a few weeks left of summer, the 19th Annual EMARC 5K Race and Walk was a tremendous kick off to the Melrose Victorian Fair. We always love a good race, but when the race is raising funds for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, like EMARC, it really knocks it up a notch in our book.

With the race kicking off at 10:00am, Alex Eld, 24 of Needham, had his eyes set on 1st place. He carried that through, finishing 43 seconds ahead of second place finisher Mathew Moore in 18:12.

On the women’s side, Kat Basille of Medford and Emily Mcdivitt of Malden put on a North Shore show, finishing 1-2 for times of 21:10 and 21:36 respectively. Both Kat and Emily won each of their age groups.

With over 350 runners and a ton of money raised, we hope that the 20th Annual EMARC 5K will be an even bigger success!
