FBE Apple Run
The FBE Apple 5K and 1 mile race are events that are a celebration of education in Belmont.
The 5k race passes by four of Belmont's schools (Burbank, Chenery, Wellington, and the High School) and recognizes Belmont's commitment to educating its young.
The proceeds from the race will fund the Education Innovation Fund for the Foundation for Belmont Education, a 501c3 non-profit organization that works with residents and businesses in Belmont, Massachusetts to raise private funds that are used to enrich the education provided by the Belmont Public Schools.
The Apple 5K covers a scenic, 5 kilometer route through this historic Boston suburb.
Starting and ending at the Belmont High School track on Concord Avenue, the 5k course winds gently uphill for the first half of the race, passing the Burbank Elementary school and the historic Payson Park Reservoir.
The course turns downhill just past the midway mark and then passes both the Chenery Middle School and Wellington Elementary.
It finishes with a loop on the Belmont High School track.
Total length: 5k.
The 1 mile is a timed race suitable for runners of all ages and abilities.
It follows a flat, loop course starting on the Belmont track and looping through the sports fields before ending back at the track.
New this year will be some added fun.
