For the last few years we have held Western Greenway 5K walk and run benefit event where people of all ages traverse a 5K distance through the Western Greenway. The 5K (3.2 mile) course goes through and around a variety of habitats in Beaver Brook North Reservation and Rock Meadow, including cattail marshes, forests, vernal pools, and open meadows. This 5K is part of the Race Around Waltham group of runs.
Everyone is timed, prizes are awarded to fastest in many categories, food and drinks are provided, and we always have extras for lucky bib numbers so everyone who registers has a chance of winning a prize! Proceeds from the entrance fee helps the Waltham Land Trust keep protecting open space in Waltham.
Online registration ends at 8 pm on Thursday, September 28. The fee will be $5 more to register in person at the bib pickup on Saturday between noon-2:30 pm at Bistro 781 or before the race on Sunday at Elsie Turner Field. Thanks to Bistro 781 for also hosting the post-race party!
