Participants will begin the race on Church Street and loop around the lake. The race is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Nov. 16. Cost for adults: $15 (no shirt) or $20 (with shirt). Runners may register in advance online by visiting www.racewire.com/register.php?id=3467. On the day of the race, registration will take place from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. at First Parish Congregational Church at 1 Church St. in Wakefield. Participants may pick up their race numbers during this time. For more information or to volunteer, contact Joanne Waterhouse at 781-909-7402 or jwaterhouse@ymcaboston.org.
