The newest event in the Barn to Run Trail Race Series, the Adams Farm Trail Run will be Sunday, October 27, 2019 at Adams Farm in Walpole, MA. This event will feature 4 race distances to choose from including 3.4, 6 and 8 mile races for runners of all ages and abilities. Plus, as a new wrinkle to the series, the event features a 2 mile Canicross race where individuals run with their harnessed dog.
Each race starts and ends with the Blue trail which is a combination of wide trails with footing on hardpacked dirt and loose gravel as well as single track with typical trail conditions ranging from grass, exposed roots, rocks, crushed leaves and pine needles, etc. The 6 and 8 mile races also utilize sections of the Orange, White and Red trails which are generally more narrow singletrack with lots of fun switchbacks.
