Course & Event Description

  • The race will be ten 5 mile loops within Weymouth Woods State Nature Preserve. Each loop will begin and end at the park visitor center. The trails are a combination of sand, lots of roots, pinestraw, and dirt. Bring gaters - unless you want to pick pinestraw out of your shoes!

  • Solo runners will complete ten loops. Relay partners will each complete five loops.

  • The course will be well marked with orange flags and directional signs. It is almost impossible to get lost or go off trail. Seriously! You will need a good light, however, if you plan on being out after dark.
