About the Run

The FBE Apple 5K and 2K races are events that celebrate education in Belmont. The 5K run passes by four of Belmont’s schools (Burbank, Chenery, Wellington, and the High School) and recognizes Belmont’s commitment to educating its young.

Now in its tenth year (six years as the Dan Scharfman Memorial Run), the FBE Apple Run has brought thousands of runners to the streets of Belmont, Massachusetts to support public education and innovation in the Belmont Public Schools. Since our inaugural event in 2013, the Apple Run has raised more than $200,000 for the Foundation for Belmont Education, a 501c3 non-profit organization that awards grants to the Belmont Public Schools to enrich the education provided to Belmont students.

Belmont Runs for Education!

The Courses

The FBE Apple Run 5K  follows a scenic, 5-kilometer route through Belmont. Starting and ending at the Belmont High School track on Concord Avenue, the course passes by four of the town’s six public schools and the historic Payson Park Reservoir. The course ends back at the Belmont High School track. Total length: 5K.

The FBE Apple Run 2K Race course is a flat course beginning at the Belmont High School track, running along Concord Avenue, looping back, and finishing back at the track. This is more of a cross country style run and is suitable for runners/walkers of all ages and abilities. If you have very young children, a jogging stroller may work best.
