The YMCA of the North Shore will celebrate the life of David Curley when it hosts the third annual David Curley Memorial 5K Road Race on June 20.
The 3.1 mile race is fun for runners of all experience levels. With varying topography and several twists and turns, the course winds through Haverhill and past scenic Lake Pentucket en route to the finish line.
Curley started running in his 40s in an effort to get into better shape and it quickly became a passion. His dream was to have a diverse community of runners and walkers who gathered together to challenge themselves, support each other, and have fun. His dream has come to life with this event.
