The New England Center for Children’s 4th Annual 5K Walk/Run for Autism will take place in Southborough on Saturday, May 8. The race starts and ends near Pilgrim Church, with the route following Clifford, Deerfoot, and Middle Roads.

There will be road closures around Pilgrim Church on Saturday morning, so plan accordingly. Registration starts at 8:30 am and the race starts at 10:00. You can also register in advance online.
