HOUGHTON’S POND TRAIL RACE (7.0 Miles)
DCR BLUE HILLS RESERVATION – MILTON, MA.
Sunday, October 1, 2017 – 9:00am
Houghton’s Pond Main Parking Lot, 0.2 mi. west of the DCR Blue Hills Reservation HQ, 840 Hillside Street, Milton, MA 02186.
Directions: From Route 93 (Rt. 128), take Exit 2 to Rt. 138 North (“Milton”). Turn right at the first full set of traffic lights (Mobil station is on left corner). Drive one mile to stop sign, and continue straight ahead. The Houghton’s Pond parking lot is on the right, 0.2 mi. after the stop sign.
A rolling course over dirt roads and forest paths in the Houghton’s Pond section of the scenic DCR Blue Hills Reservation, a 7000-acre state-owned park just south of Boston. The course avoids steep hiking trails, but this IS a trail race, with plenty of small rocks and tree roots along the way!
NEW COURSE FOR 2017! We have modified the course to eliminate all paved sections, and to increase the course distance from 6.2 to 7.0 miles.
FOR SAFETY’S SAKE: Due to narrow trails, dogs are not allowed, and we request that you do not use headphones.
$25 ($20 for Members of Colonial Road Runners)
