Charbo’s Run, a memorial road race that ran from 1995 to 2004 and honored the life of State Trooper Mark S. Charbonnier will return to Dorchester in 2019. The 5-mile road race is scheduled for Sunday March 24, 2019 and commemorates the 25th anniversary of Charbonnier’s death. The race will start and finish at Florian Hall in Dorchester. It will bring together the local communities and raise awareness and funds for The Trooper Mark Charbonnier Scholarship.
On September 2, 1994, Charbonnier, who served 6 years in the Massachusetts State Police, was shot and killed in the line of duty. A man of great character, Charbonnier was admired by his professional and personal colleagues and devoted his life to fighting crimes and standing up to evil. The family and friends of Trooper Charbonnier, who was an avid runner, paid tribute to him by hosting an annual race. For 10 years, the race raised more than $500,000 and brought in crowds of more than 8,000 people, making it one of the largest law enforcement road races in the country. Such growth would not have been possible without the support of local residents and the generous assistance of loyal sponsors.
Now, on the 25th anniversary of Charbonnier’s death, the race returns to the Dorchester streets. With registration now under way, Charbo’s Run aims to reach those great heights once more. For more information on Charbo’s Run 2019, please visit www.charbosrun.com or follow the facebook event page.
