Massport Presents: ZUMIX RUN 2 the BEAT
Sunday, September 29, 2013 from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
Whether it’s Justin Timberlake, David Bowie, the Spice Girls, or the sound of sneakers hitting the pavement, we all run to the beat. Join us for ZUMIX’s 4th annual RUN 2 the BEAT, Boston’s most scenic, musical, and fun 5K!
Starting in Piers Park with incredible skyline views, our flat and fast race course takes you through Eastie’s incredible green spaces with live music along the route to help you push your pace and have fun! We invite you to run in costume, dressed as your favorite musical icon – either as a soloist or in a SUPERGROUP of four or more runners!
You’ll be joined by over 400 runners of all ages and fitness levels. Together, we’ll raise $20,000 to support ZUMIX’s work empowering youth and building community through music and the arts!
Check in begins at 8am, race starts at 9am. After the race, join us for a post-run celebration, with performances from ZUMIX youth, food, games, and more! Prizes awarded to the fastest runners and best costumes!
Low registration fee of $30 for adults and $15 for youth (under 18). Create a team of four or more runners and save $5 each!
Thank you to our sponors, East Boston Neighborhood Health Center, Otis & Ahearn, Merrill Lynch, and our title sponsor Massport.

Founded in 1991 in response to the worst year of violence in Boston’s history, ZUMIX offers award-winning programs in songwriting, performance, radio, audio technology, and theater for youth ages 7-18. Now operating out of a 9,000 sq-foot renovated firehouse in East Boston, each year we serve 500 youth in our after-school and summer programs, 550 youth through in-school partnerships, and reach more than 10,000 additional youth and adults through workshops, community events, and outdoor concerts. In 2011 our Executive Director and one of our teens traveled to the White House to accept the National Arts and Humanities Youth Programs Award from First Lady Michelle Obama.
