Bring It On! Greenbelt Offers Two Trail Runs on the North Shore this Summer
Greenbelt will host two trail runs this summer as part of the 2019 North Shore Trail Series sponsored by New England Running Company & Salomon.
Greenbelt’s first race is the Pingree Run for the Hills 5K and 10K trail run on Saturday, July 13th at 9:00 am at the Pingree Reservation behind the Pingree School in South Hamilton, MA. The race route features beautiful wooded trails that climb up and down a remarkable series of glacial landforms called “eskers”. Runners may register for the 5K or 10K distance. Register online until July 10th, or at the event on race day. Visit ecga.org/events for details.
Greenbelt’s second race of the summer is the Beverly Commons 3.5 and 7-mile trail run on Saturday, August 24, 2019 at the 126-acre Beverly Commons Conservation Area in Beverly Farms, MA. The race route is scenic and challenging, with sections of steep hills and rocky terrain. Runners may register for the 3.5 mile or 7 mile distance. Register online until August 21st, or at the event on race day. Visit ecga.org/events for details.
Registration for both of Greenbelt’s races include timing, race gear (while supplies last), food, beverages and prizes. The proceeds benefit Greenbelt’s land conservation work throughout Essex County.
