Blue Hills Reservation – Milton, MA

REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED AS WE HAVE HIT THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS PERMITTED BY THE DCR.

The Location:
Start and Finish next to the Blue Hills Trailside Museum, 1904 Canton Avenue (Rt. 138), in Milton. Directions: From Route 93 (Rt. 128), take Exit 2 to Rt. 138 North (“Milton”). Follow Rt. 138 for 1.2 miles to the parking lots for the Trailside Museum and the Blue Hills Ski Area (use either lot).

The Courses:
Come run on miles of beautiful trails in the scenic Blue Hills Reservation, just south of Boston. The well-marked courses follow dirt roads and forest paths, except for short paved sections at the start and finish of the races.

The FOX TROT (10 miles) offers a mix of double and single-track trails with some hilly and rocky stretches. There are three water stops. Fox Trot Map

The BUNNY HOP (3 miles) is recommended for new trail-runners. This course offers easier terrain on wide paths–but this is still a trail race, with plenty of small rocks and tree roots along the way! There is one water stop. Bunny Hop Map

Overall winners in each race receive Marathon Sports gift certificates and loaves of home-baked banana bread. Age group winners receive chocolate-chip cookies. Post-race refreshments include soda, juice, bananas and trail munchies (cookies, chips, pretzels, etc.).
