Registration is now open for the Eleventh Annual Houghton’s Pond Trail Race, which will be held on Sunday, October 5 at 9:00 AM. We’re grateful to Colonial Runners for donating part of the proceeds from this race to the Friends of the Blue Hills!
REGISTER ONLINE and review information about the race. There is no service fee for online registration! A mail-in application form will be posted in about a week on the Colonial Road Runners website, www.colonialrunners.org. Or, email John Goldrosen and her can send you one either as an email attachment or by mail.
The Houghton’s Pond Trail Race follows a 6.2-mile route through the Houghton’s Pond section of the DCR Blue Hills Reservation. The 2014 course will be the same as in 2009-2013.
As conditions for our DCR race permit, we have agreed to the following
–Registration is limited to 250 runners
–Runners must pre-enter. There will be NO race-day registration
Last year, we reached the registration limit a few days before the race. Please register early and don’t be shut out!
Runners who register by September 13 are guaranteed to receive our distinctive Houghton’s Pond Trail Race T-shirt, which is definitely a “keeper”.
Part of the proceeds from the race will be donated to the Friends of the Blue Hills, to help support its trail maintenance program and other advocacy efforts to preserve the Blue Hills Reservation.
Please contact John Goldrosen with any questions, concerns, and suggestions.
