SNOW! Yes, the race will go on. Be prepared for ~6" of powdery snow, very cold temperatures, and lots of fun! Dress warm, bring extra clothes, dry socks, etc. Snowshoes, traction devices, etc, are welcome, although the course can be tight and rocky in spots, so snowshoes may be awkward.
5 kilometer race along the wooded trails of Old Mountain Field right in the heart of Wakefield. A course map is available on the race website. (click website icon above)
Open to all ages. No dogs. No strollers. Headphones strongly discouraged.
Prizes for top overall, age group, and team finishers.
Don't forget to bring two items for our food drive. We collect non-perishable food donations at each of the races in the series for the local food pantry. Last year, racers provided nearly two thousand pounds of much needed items over the five events.
