The Western Greenway 5K

Since 2013, the Waltham Land Trust has held the Western Greenway 5K walk and run benefit event where people of all ages traverse a 5K distance through the Western Greenway.

The 5K (3.1 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 year's race route is the same as last year. In 2021, WLT eliminated the trail portion over a small bridge where runners expressed concerns that it was often slippery under the conditions that typically are present during the race.

Thank you to everyone who was part of the 2022 Western Greenway 5k Sunday, October 23, 2022 at 1:00pm.
