This year's Western Greenway 5k starts at noon on Sunday, October 27, 2019!
Since 2013 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 (3.1 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 is a gun timed race, 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 10 pm on Thursday, October 24, 2019. The fee will be $5 more to register in person at the bib pickup on Saturday October 26, 2019 or before the race starts on Sunday at McLaughlin Building, Metropolitan Parkway.
Bib pickup is from 2:00 - 4:00pm at Bistro 781 on Saturday, October 26, 2019. Bibs can also be picked on Sunday, October 27th, 2019, at the race before 11:30am.
The race begins Sunday, October 27, 2019 at noon, with walkers starting after the runners have headed off.
