Cambridge 5K - Craicfest has one of the most amazing courses you'll ever run! It starts @ CambridgeSide Galleria, goes under the Zakim Bridge, over the amazing Northpoint Pedestrian Bridge then finishes in the midst of a $2 Billion mega development called "Northpoint" (that's being built on the site of an old rail yard in East Cambridge).
As you can see from the master plan above, Northpoint is going to dramatically change East Cambridge. Not wanting to miss any of this 'architectual excitement', we decided to try something different with Craicfest. Rather than keeping the course exactly the same each year (like our other races), we plan to gradually adjust the finish line as new roads are added. The 1st Annual Craicfest may be a little tight and windy, but over the years we're confident this race will become a New England favorite. [Nerd Alert: Northpoint master plan: (.pdf)]
