Houghton's Pond Trail Race
Registration for the 12th Annual Houghton's Pond Trail race is now open. This year's race will take place on October 4, 2015. This 6.2 mile race is a rolling course over dirt roads and forest paths in the Houghton’s Pond section of the scenic DCR Blue Hills Reservation, a 7,000-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! Registration is just $25 (CRR members receive a $5 discount) and includes a race t-shirt to all runners registered before September 13, 2015. For complete race and registration information, visit the official Houghton's Pond Trail Race website.
