Herring Run and Paddle Held May 15th

Over 250 people enjoyed the festivities as part of the 15th annual Mystic River Herring Run and Paddle on Sunday, May 15.  The 5k road race and three paddling races (3, 9, 12 mile) brought attention to the Mystic River and the migrating herring that call it home.  Highlights of the day included the first bike tour as part of the day’s activities, various children’s activities, the US EPA Mystic River Report Card announcement, and food provided by Bertucci’s of Medford, Whole Foods Market of Medford, Honest Tea, Stonyfield Farm and Balance Bar. Thanks to all who attended – we hope to see you again next year! All race proceeds benefit the Mystic River Watershed Association. Thank you to our many sponsors, supporters and volunteers for making this day a success!
