Please join us on July 4th, 2021, when the 16th running of the BOOMBOX MILE will take place. Run this fast one mile course and help bring back the tradition while thousands of spectators assembled for the parade cheer you on as you make your way down Main St through Willimantic’s historic downtown. Once the race is over, make your way back to the start for post-race awards and light snacks and stay in town for what is arguably the nation’s most unique Fourth of July Day Parade.
