"Charbo's Run"

       Trooper Mark S. Charbonnier was suddenly and violently ripped from us on September 2, 1994. The murder of Mark is a haunting reality that exits for us today and the rest of our days.

      On March 12, 1995, the family and friends of Trooper Mark S. Charbonnier paid tribute to him by hosting the first annual “Charbo’s Run”. The first road race drew about 2,000 runners and walkers, which was a tremendous showing that exceeded our expectations. In the 9 years that followed we saw the race grow to as many as 8,000 runners, making it one of the largest road races in Massachusetts.

        The staff and volunteers put a tremendous amount of time and effort into this race and the overwhelming turnout made it all worth while.

          On March 28, 2004, we hosted the 10TH and final “Charbo’s Run”. We announced with heavy hearts that the race would end after 10 very successful years. This was a very difficult decision for Mark’s family and friends, but one that needed to be made. We wanted to end the race on our terms, with class, dignity and respect, the same way Mark led his life. 
           On Sunday March 24, 2019 the family and friends of Mark wish again to pay tribute to him by hosting the 25TH Anniversary Charbo's Run. For more information and to register please go to
