Harvard Square

Long before Christmas, there was a quirky winter festival named "Yule" that people really loved. Join us in Harvard Square on Sunday, 12/9 for a 5k race that takes the holidays back to their old school roots!

Registration includes a cozy limited edition knit hat plus a festive block party with Notch Brewing, Somerville Brewing & Bantam Cider.

Support Local Families!

Yulefest benefits Cambridge’s oldest human services agency, Cambridge Family & Children’s Service. Last year Cambridge 5K was recognized by CFCS as a “visionary sponsor” at their annual gala.

This year’s hat is black & gray.
