Jennifer Tinney was a 21-year-old Northeastern honor student who came home to Boxford to attend her cousin's first communion. An avid runner, she was killed by a drunk driver while running the Boxford 5-mile route after attending the family gathering.
Jennifer Tinney Memorial Road Race
Set in the historic East Boxford Village, the Jennifer Tinney Memorial 4th of July Road Race is a popular five-mile competitive event open to all adults. Trophies are awarded to the top finishers. For the children, there is a one-mile Kid's Race and three-mile Walk For Fitness.
