This Weekend on the Trails

So many races, so little time!  

Saturday Oct 24th:

CSU SKYLINE SCRAMBLE 8M – Middlesex Fells Reservation, Stoneham MA – A challenging loop with many rocks, root and steep climbs and descents.

Run For The Trails 5 & 10 Miles - Devon Glen Farm, Hamilton MA - This is your chance to run on some beautiful, privately owned trails not generally open to the public.

Sunday Oct 25th:

Cider Mash 5K Orchard Trail Run - Cider Hill Farm, Amsbury MA - A flat start through the apple and peach trees in the orchard gives way to muddy bogs. The course twists through rows of apples trees and up the infamous, and dreaded, green hill!  This hill is a real grind. Nothing says fall in New England like cider doughnuts, fresh apple cider and apples for all participants. Yum!

Ghost Train Rail Trail Race 15M - Brookline, NH - Race along the old railroad tracks that were used in the late 19th and early 20th century to ship granite from Milford and ice from Lake Potanipo to Massachusetts.

Groton Town Forest Trail Race 9.5M - Groton MA - A combination of narrow dirt roads and winding single lane trails, with lots of roots, rocks, leaves, uphills, and downhills. The hills are not large (though some are steep) but they offer a distinct challenge.

Stone Tower Trail Challange 15K - Lynn Woods, Lynn MA - Seasoned trail runners raved at the challenging 15 k course which tours the heights and under-trails in a moderately grueling fashion! You will need to be fit to take on this tour as you run along the fire roads and single path trails. You will be ascending rocky and hilly terrain,  past reservoirs, rose gardens, and scenic vistas.
Go knock yourself out!


  1. You folks have a ton of races, I'm kind of jealous. We are in the land of 5ks here.

  2. That Ghost Train race looks really interesting. I think I'll check it out.


What's on your mind?
