“We are excited to welcome runners back to Patriot Place for our annual Finish at the 50 Road Race,” said Rick O’Connor, chief marketing officer of Tufts Health Plan and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. “After the cancellation of road races and marathons over the past year, I cannot think of a better way to kick-off the Labor Day weekend.”

The race is managed by DMSE Sports, which also helps manage the Boston Marathon and assisted in COVID-19 vaccination efforts at Gillette Stadium this spring.

“We are thrilled to once again host the Harvard Pilgrim Finish at the 50 after last year’s cancellation,” said Brian Earley, vice president and general manager of Patriot Place. “The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has made incredible progress through the reopening process and we look forward to safely welcoming our runners back to this exciting annual event in 2021 and for years to come.”
