Trail Run Course

The  5K & 10K routes are designed to tour the different types of habitat we feature on the Watershed Reserve with views of meadow and forest. The path tours our pond ecosystem, parallels fields, forest, wetlands, and the Honey Brook Organic Farm. The trails have several intersecting paths along the route which will be well marked for race day, staffed by volunteers, and maintained to avoid major hazards. The trail is designed with wider sections at the beginning for clusters of runners and narrows as it enters the woods and parallels roadways. This is an off-road experience that, although evenly graded, includes natural and often uneven terrain. The wooded sections are relatively debris free with occasional roots and rocks. The field sections often contain slick and wet areas depending on weather leading up to the event.
