A special note about gender categories and registration: AIDS Action strives to be inclusive in our events, so the gender category on the registration form is optional. The USA Track & Field Association requires runners to identify as male or female in order to use participation in road races as a qualifier for future races. If you choose not select male or female, please leave that question blank and you will be entered into a 3rd awards category based solely on race participants' finishing time, and not based on gender. Questions? Call us at 617-424-WALK (9255).
