Runners Delight in Revere Running Events 

If running is your “thing,” Revere and the surrounding communities provide ample opportunities to run along the scenic waterfront, race against like-minded running enthusiasts, and enjoy a day of fun around your favorite activity. 

Whether you like to run in the warm summer months, the crisp fall weather, or somehow enjoy the cold of winter and early spring, Revere has some amazing places and events for you to consider. 

Daffodil Run

Suffolk Downs Marathon Daffodil Dash 

In honor of the victims and survivors of the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing, Revere Parks and Recreation along with Suffolk Downs have hosted a Marathon Daffodil Dash every April around the same time as the Boston Marathon. The third annual Marathon Daffodil Dash is on Saturday, April 13th from 10 am – 1 pm on The Track.

Children in grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8 can take part in this free fun run. The youngest runners will take part in a 50-yard dash and the oldest can participate in a two-mile run. Along the route will be yellow daffodils that symbolize hope and strength and are enduring reminders of those who were lost and those who suffered on that horrific day. 

After the race, hang out in the Paddock with games provided by Revere Parks and Recreation and post-run snacks provided by Suffolk Downs. 

While this event is free to attend and open to the public, they do request that participants register in advance. Please register each child separately.

Suffolk Downs is located on 525 McClellan Highway in East Boston just minutes from Revere, Massachusetts. 

Revere Beach Fall Pumpkin Dash & 5K 

Every fall the Revere Beach Partnership hosts a festive community event that combines fitness, fun, and the spirit of the fall season. The Pumpkin Dash and 5K is held every year in October along beautiful Revere Beach. 

This family-friendly fun run features a lively and inclusive atmosphere including lots of festive autumn decorations, pumpkins, food and live music.

Included in the event is a free pumpkin patch for children under 12 who would like to pick a pumpkin and decorate it. Additionally, there will be cookie decorating, giant pumpkin carving and live music to enjoy with friends and family. 

For those over 21, a beer garden will be available. Enjoy a post-race beer and snack. All runners 21+ will receive one drink included with their registration.
