Overview

The Powisset Farm Trail Run Series is a 2-event series with the first one taking place on Monday, May 29, 2017 (Memorial Day) and the second on Monday, October 9, 2017. Both events are based at Powisset Farm in Dover, MA and include running the trails of Powisset Farm and neighboring Noanet Woodlands. There are three race distances to choose from: 8.3 miles, 5.6 miles and a 1.5 miles (geared towards kids, but open to athletes of all ages). Each race begins and ends at Powisset Farm near the main barn and utilizes Powisset Farm's scenic Meadow Loop trail which is a very flat and grassy trail characterized by views of the farm, rock walls, hundred plus year old fencing and numerous bird boxes. Runners in the 5.6 and 8.3 mile races will also run along trails in Noanet Woodlands which are generally wide with some single-track sections. These trails offer rolling hills except for the short, but rather steep climb (and descent) of Noanet Peak (387 feet) which offers a terrific view of Boston. Footing varies from hardpacked dirt to sections with rocks, loose gravel and some exposed roots. The 1.5 mile run start at 8:00am and the 5.6 and 8.3 mile run will start once all runners in the 1.5 mile race have crossed the finish line.

The 1.5 mile run is entirely on the grounds of Powisset Farm and will utilize the Meadow Loop exclusively. This run will start and end near the main barn.
