A year after Watertown residents filled the streets after the capture of the Boston Marathon Bombing suspect, people will take to town roads – this time for a road race sponsored by the Watertown Police.

The 5K race will be held on Saturday, April 19 at 10 a.m. and will raise money for a number of organizations, including the One Fund, the Watertown Police Foundation and the Watertown Police Supervisor’s Association. One Fund benefits those impacted by the Marathon Bombings, and the Watertown Police Foundation supports programs for youth and schools in Watertown.

The race begins at Tufts Health Plan at 705 Mt. Auburn St. in Watertown, and registration costs $25 before race day and $30 on the day of the event. Participants can register at
