The inaugural Dick Hoyt Memorial Yes You Can Run Together Road Race was held Saturday in Hopkinton. The route for the 5-mile race (and 2-mile walk) took runners from Marathon School past the Team Hoyt statue in front of Center School and back.

The race was held five days after the sudden death of Rick Hoyt, who had been the race’s director.
