The 3.4 run starts and ends at Chestnut Hill Farm. About 0.25 miles into the course, runners will cross into Beals Reserve and run a loop that is about 1 mile long. Runners will then return to the grounds of the farm for the remaining mileage. The last 0.25 mile is a straight, flat grassy path that goes directly between farm fields (great for spectating!).
The 5 mile race follows the same course as the 3.4 miler up until about the 3 mile mark at which point runners will be directed to complete a second loop that is on the Chestnut Hill Farm property.
The 6.6 mile race is the same as the 5 mile race with an additional 1.6 mile out and back loop (not featured in the 3.4 or 5 mile courses)
