On Sunday, Sept. 23, 2011, Wayland's Mansion Beach erupted in activity as more than 200 people came out to participate in the 16th annual Dudley Pond Fun Run/Walk.
Most participants hailed from Wayland but runners and walkers from Framingham, Brookline, Natick, Brighton and more showed up to take to the course around Dudley Pond.
The event benefitted the Dudley Pond Association who will use raised funds toward the preservation of the quality of Dudley Pond and to fight invasive pond weeds.
The day's activities included a fitness walk, a USA Track & Field-sanctioned 5-kilometer run, a 2-mile walk and a kids' fun run.
