THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
This year's East End Trail Races will not be held as a live event. We have been cautiously optimistic that this would be our first live race since early March, but there is no indication that we will be able to produce this event on August 2nd. Just so you know, this decision was not easy to make. The permit is still in place for the race, but from what we have seen, we feel strongly that the permit will be revoked mid-July. What we do know is races are part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts's Phase 4 of reopening and Governor Baker indicated Phase 3 will be a longer period of time than the prior two. With each phase we have also watched as local and state government agencies have needed time to process the information after it is released and adapt their own requirements to it.
We will be sending out an email to all registered participants with more information.
We thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented and extremely difficult times.
A Northeast Trail Series event
We couldn't be more excited to offer you this opportunity to run the trails of DCR Borderland State Park. If you've never been, this park is quintessential New England. You are going to love the pond views and grassy fields, the start/finish at the historic Ames Family Mansion and the rocky terrain leading up to and back down from the old granite quarry.
Local time: 1:16 PM
The course will be a ~10K loop (on the heavy side) with one aid station near the halfway point, as well as at the start/finish. It will be an easy course to follow as trails are clearly marked and have limited intersections. We will be posting a link for a Strava map of the course on our website shortly.
Why East End? Prior to being incorporated in 1725, what is now the Town of Easton was the east end of a large tract of land purchased by 53 proprietors in 1668. This east end section of the Taunton North Purchase would later be referred to as East Town before becoming Easton.
Please note that by registering for this event, you accept there are no refunds or deferrals if you are unable to attend or if the event is canceled for any reason.
