The Powisset (pronounced “po-wiss-it”) Farm Trail Run is part of the Barn to Run Trail Race Series and the fall edition of this event takes place Sunday, October 23, 2022 at Powisset Farm in Dover, MA. The event includes running the trails of Powisset Farm and neighboring Noanet Woodlands and offers 3 race distances to choose from — 8.3, 5.6 and 3.1 miles. A popular event with experienced and novice trail runners alike, the Powisset Farm Trail Run was named one of the Ten Best Trail Races for the Fall by RootsRated.
Come for the race... stay for the cider donuts! Post-race cider donuts are a staple of the fall races in the Barn to Run series. Bring the kids to see the animals, free pumpkin painting and to see all the farm has to offer!
