Your choices are almost endless. Without ever leaving the Boston metro area, you could run the free 2.5- and five-mile races around Fresh Pond in Cambridge that are held every Saturday morning at 10 a.m., or the legendarily competitive Falmouth Road Race in mid-August. But for your purposes, I’d suggest races that won’t be won by world-class pros and will allow you to enjoy New England's scenery. These are my favorites.
