As the first runners appear near Downtown Framingham, the band Tester will take the stage and rock the scene, giving the runners and fans a day to remember :: nothing short of fun music and awesome vibes to celebrate this wonderful happening that graces the center of our historic downtown each and every year.

We hope you will join us, and stay long after to grab a bite to eat at one of our many fabulous restaurants and cafes! From ethnic to Americana, you'll find it here!
