Race organizers put down electronic timing equipment for the Finish Strong 5K Road Race on the anniversary of the Watertown Manhunt, but when they went to retrieve it, the equipment was gone.
The race raised money for charities that helped the Boston Marathon Bombing victims and local school and community groups. (Click here to find out more about the race).
RaceWire, which ran the timing of the race organized by the Watertown Police Supervisor’s Association, had left a generator and red mats with bib timing devices in it on Arlington Street near Merrifield Avenue for the start of the road race, said Watertown Police Lt. Michael Lawn.
“They went to set up the finish line, and when they went back it was gone,” Lawn said.
The equipment is worth $3,200, Lawn said.
