Event Description

The 24th annual Mystic Herring Run & Paddle Goes Virtual for 2020! Run, walk, paddle--or fundraise! There is something for everyone. 

Join us the week of Sept 19-26th for the herring run and paddle. You can pick one of 4 running routes (Malden, Horn Pond, Somerville/Medford, East Boston), or a 9-mile paddle route on the Mystic. It’s simple: sign up today and get moving for the Mystic!

Feeling motivated? Do all 4 running routes to be eligible for the Olympic herring award. Add the paddle route and you will be eligible for the Iron Herring award. Donate or fundraise $100 and you'll receive a 2020 Herring Run and Paddle t-shirt.
