On the second anniversary of the events that lead to the capture of the Boston Marathon Bombing suspects the Watertown Police Supervisor’s Association will hold a 5K road race and walk.

Last year, the first WPSA 5K drew thousands of runners and walkers to Watertown. The second annual race will be held at 10 a.m. on Sunday, April 19.

The event is being organized by Wicked Fun Running Events, and hopes to bring the community together and celebrate the accomplishments and sacrifices that were made during the Boston Marathon bombing and subsequent aftermath, which occurred in Watertown in 2013.

Residents, families, friends, business and civic leaders are invited to take part in this growing Watertown tradition. To register, click here.

The race will start and finish at Tufts Health Plan, 705 Mt. Auburn St. in Watertown (at Arlington Street).

Proceeds will benefit the WPSA, Watertown Police Relief Association, youth community programming and school safety initiatives. Various sponsorship options are available and more information can be found at or by contacting Watertown Police Lt. Michael Lawn, 617-972-6500.
