The race course navigates the rolling pastoral and wooded landscape of Falmouth’s Community Park, Town Forest and Hadlock Forest trails. The race begins on wide trails along the perimeter of fields before weaving in and out of the woods on a variety of trails from smooth and flat to twisting, rooty and rocky. The 5 mile race turns back at 2.5 miles to complete the loop while the 10 miler crosses Winn Road to continue to Hadlock Forest before returning.
 Falmouth Land Trust’s mission is to:

  • Permanently protect field, forest, shoreline, and wildlife lands;
  • Maintain the historical character and natural beauty of Falmouth;
  • Educate its citizens regarding the values of donation, stewardship, and enjoyment of protected lands.
