The City of Somerville has set April 13th as the date for its 5th Annual Shape Up Somerville Road Race which will now feature a full 5K adult race increasing from previous year's 2.7 mile length.

As always, starting off the race will be a children's 1 mile fun run with all races beginning and ending on the City Hall concourse. The children's race starts at 10:30am, the adults at 11:30am.

Registration is open to all community members at a price of $5 for youth under age 10, and $20 for adults. Price includes a commemorative t-shirt, refreshments and a celebration immediately following the adult race. Adult runners are also invited to a post-race celebration.

To register, please visit, or visit City Hall or the Recreation Department (19 Walnut Street) for printed applications. Checks should be made payable to Somerville Youth and Recreation Foundation, and can be mailed or delivered to Somerville Recreation, 19 Walnut Street, Somerville, MA 02143.

Top male and female finishers in each category will receive awards. For additional information, please call the Somerville Recreation Department at 617-625-6600 ext. 2980.
