Marblehead Road Race Series resumes in Oct. 1

The town’s Road Race Series is set to restart on Oct. 1, featuring four running and walking events slated to run through Nov. 5.

The series, reintroduced this year by a coalition of race organizers, seeks to cultivate community among the local running and walking enthusiasts.

Participants who finish four of the six series races will earn a hooded sweatshirt. For those who have already completed the first two races, taking part in just two of the next four will make them eligible. Though there’s no series fee, individual races may have their own registration costs.

Here’s the upcoming race lineup:

— Oct. 1: Run for the Fund 5K — Sponsored by Marblehead Dollars for Scholars, the event raises funds for need-based college scholarships for local students. Register at:

— Oct. 14: Miles for Mary 5K Walk/Run — In association with Miles for Mary, this event supports brain cancer research at Mass General Cancer Center in honor of Mary Park. More information can be found at
