Course Description

The course is a mix of double and single track trails through the Wildlife Management Area (WMA). The entire course is on established trails and will be marked with flags and signs. 10K runners will complete the loop twice. Please note that dogs are not allowed on the WMA during the run.
There will be one water stop (10K will pass by twice). We encourage runners to bring their own bottles, if possible, to reduce the amount of waste. Water and light snacks will be available at the finish.

The Kids 1-mile Fun Run will be a marked loop with adults at each turn to ensure no one gets off course. There will be finishing prizes for all participants. Please note the Kids Fun Run will not be timed.

The start/finish will be at MassWildlife Field Headquarters located at 1 Rabbit Hill Road, Westborough, MA. This is located off of Route 135 (Milk Street), less than 1 mile from Route 9. There is parking on site, but please try to carpool if you can!

Support endangered species conservation

All proceeds will benefit the Natural Heritage & Endangered Species Fund. MassWildlife’s Natural Heritage & Endangered Species Program focuses on conserving rare species and their habitats throughout Massachusetts. All money donated to MassWildlife's Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program goes towards conserving the more than 400 rare animals and plants that call Massachusetts home. Your race registration fee goes toward equipment and services needed to give these species a fighting chance. These rare species play an important role in keeping the Commonwealth's natural communities thriving.

If you'd like to provide an additional donation, there will be an option to do so when registering.
