Marlborough – Local runners celebrated the start of summer with a mid-day 5K race to benefit the Massachusetts Special Olympics. On June 21, employees of the state's Special Olympics headquarters at Yawkey Sports Training Center in Marlborough and other local residents took a break from the work day for the noon race. The $25 entry fee will help support the organization's activities for children with special needs. The race winners, including Thomas Long of Marlborough, received New Balance gift cards.
