The Walk Course
The Tattapanum trail is a lovely lollypop shaped route that's super-walkable and family friendly. Roots and rocks are prevalent, though there is little incline or decline on the loop.
The loop itself is about a mile long so the distance presented includes the walk to and from our staging area.
The Run Course
Join us for one or two loops of this 5ish mile course through the rough roads and trails in the Fall River Bioreserve. You'll find a mix of rough paved roads, dirt and sand roads, grassy trails, and some rocky sections on the loop. There's very little elevation on this course, making it FAST for those looking to race.
Hikers or hike/runners looking to utilize the 5 mile loop may begin the "run" early after the 10 mile participants begin.
The Ride Course
We're offering this 10ish mile loop for you to do once or twice. Due to the rough (sometimes muddy!) roads and trails, this route MUST be done on a gravel bike or mountain bike. That said- the route is supremely rideable even for novice riders looking to try out their first gravel ride! If you're an experienced rider, this is a fun course to race through wide fire roads, grassy trails, and a little bit of single track.
