The 2021 St. Joseph's Hospital Peter B. Davis Commit to Get Fit will be all about fitness! On Sunday, September 19th, we will gather together at Mine Falls Park in Nashua to celebrate all that has been achieved to improve health, wellness, and overall fitness in 2021. This will be our 1st Annual Commit to Get Fit and we are so excited to be planning this in-person event that will support our brand new Senior Behavioral Health Unit!
This race will feature a beautiful trail course along the trails of Mine Falls. This event is open to all ages, so bring a friend, your family or colleagues and start the day with us!
The 5K course starts about half way down the parking lot in front of Stellos Stadium. Run from there into Mine Falls park by the skate park, follow the path and go around the gate. Stay straight so the pond and then the canal are on your right until you reach the river bridge (Nashua High South) on your right (Mile 1). Cross over the bridge and go left on the paved path and follow it so the canal is now on your left, continue through the highway tunnel until you reach the second bridge (Whipple Street/Soifert Memorial Fields). Cross over the bridge and take a left at the flagpole and keep running so the canal is now on your left. (You are half done!) Stay on the main path (left at fork) keeping the canal on your left. Pass by the first bridge at Nashua High South (Mile 2), and continue back so the canal and then the pond are on your left. Almost done, keep running back through the gate towards the skate park. The finish line will be marked across from the skate park on the sidewalk by the parking lot.
The 10k course will circle back at the boat ramp lot before you reach the skate park to do the loop one more time.
While there are sections of pavement, remember much of the course is on unpaved trails, keep that in mind if you are thinking of pushing a stroller. The park will be open to the public during this event. We ask that you use courtesy and share the trails accordingly.
