LEOMINSTER — The Boys & Girls Club of Fitchburg and Leominster will host the seventh annual Great Futures 5K Run & Walk Saturday, June 18, at the club, 365 Lindell Ave.

The 5K, which is open to all levels of runners and walkers, will benefit the Boys & Girls Club.

The race will start at 10:30 a.m. in front of the club, and make the 5K loop around the scenic neighborhoods of west Leominster. Race highlights include medals to the top finishers in all divisions, barbecue, live music and family activities.

To register, go to or stop in at the Boys & Girls Club noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, noon to 5 p.m. Registration is also available the day of the race, but participants are encouraged to pre-register to take advantage of pre-registration rates.
