- Tots' Trot - A great way to introduce
the children to running as a fun family activity.
- 2K - Longer that the Trot (approximately 1.2 miles),
but not as much pressure as the 5K. Perfect for young, aspiring
athletes to strut their stuff or for parents and grandparents to run
alongside their youngsters.
- 5K - A beautiful course that winds
through town - and did we mention the hill?
- 10K - An idyllic route set on rolling
hills that takes you through scenic Groton.
The registration, packet pickup, and start/finish locations will be at the same location as past years - at the campus of the Groton-Dunstable Regional Middle School, off of Route 119/Main Street. Groton is located 7 miles off Route 495 Exit 31. Click here to get directions.
