About This Activity

RACE DAY REGISTRATION WILL OPEN AT 1:00pm at the Boston Yacht Club located at 1 Front St.  The race will start promptly at 2:00pm.

Be a part of the Don Humphreys Veterans Memorial 5K brought to you by the Marblehead Rotary Club.


Join us for a scenic race through downtown Marblehead. The race course begins at the Boston Yacht Club  (BYC), overlooking Marblehead Harbor and will take you through old town Marblehead, back through the community, returning to the BYC.

After the race is over, runners and their supporters are invited to join us at the BYC for a complimentary beer or wine (for runners) and snacks. A full cash bar will also be available.

The proceeds from this race will support the Marblehead Rotary Club’s scholarship program and will provide a new scholarship to support a son or daughter of a veteran or a student entering a military academy.


The race is memory of Don Humphreys. Don was a WWII Marine veteran of Guadalcanal,   a dedicated pilot, a loving friend to young and old, and a Marblehead Rotarian who personified the Rotary ideal of “service above self”. He believed in the good work of Rotary and it's commitment to providing scholarships to deserving high school gradutates. By participating in this race, you are strengthening and continuing his legacy!

Enjoy a beautiful Sunday and support the Marblehead Rotary Club! For more information or to answer any questions, please contact Jaime Bloch, Race Director, at blochj@northshoreymca.org
