The 6th Annual City of Presidents 5k Road Race/Walk

Join us at 9:30 AM on Sunday, September 29th at Adams Field, 1 Merrymount Parkway, for this year's City of Presidents 5k!

The 6th Annual City of Presidents 5k Road Race/Walk succeeds two longtime races in Quincy, The U.S. Marshall William F. Degan Memorial Road Race and the Officer Jamie Cochrane Memorial Road Race. The City of Quincy and the Quincy Public Schools present this event to promote health & wellness for our residents with proceeds benefiting programs for Quincy Public Schools. 

We are also fortunate to again be working with the family of Emily Zarnoch. Emily was a beloved teacher at our Central Middle School, an avid runner, and longtime member of the Quincy Track Club. Thank you to the Zarnoch family for your support, and for sharing Emily‚Äôs life and legacy with us all.
