The Western Greenway 5K is trail route starting and finishing at Elsie Turner Field on Trapelo Road in Waltham. The Western Greenway features miles of trails and old carriage roads which loop through a variety of habitats: including cattail marshes, red maple swamps, mature oak-hickory forests, vernal pools, new forests, and open meadows. The course is rocky and unpaved, therefore strollers or baby joggers are not allowed on the course.
Runners will be chip-timed by RaceWire with awards for top male(s) and female(s) finishers in each various age groups. Walkers are especially welcome to participate in this event – come out and enjoy the foliage in one of Waltham’s natural treasures. The event is part of the 2013 Race Around Waltham Series and proceeds will benefit RAW Series events and the Waltham Land Trust. Register at http://racewire.com/event.php?id=1055
