Course Information

Our course will be one of the fastest courses in the Pioneer Valley! If you are looking for a PR, this is your race.

The start and finish will be at the Sunderland Elementary School, and will follow a loop course through local farms and neighborhoods, with a mixture of shaded streets and open streets, all with beautiful views. While many roads will be open, several will be closed throughout the race to improve your experience.

Both courses are USATF certified (10K: MA17009JK, 5k: MA17010JK).

The race will start at 9:00 AM at the Sunderland Elementary School (1 Swampfield Dr., Sunderland, MA), and will follow a loop course through local farms and neighborhoods, with a mixture of shaded streets and open streets, all with beautiful views, finishing back at the elementary school. There will also a fun run held at the elementary school for children (no registration required). The fun run will begin promptly at 8:30 AM

Safety: We are doing our best to bring you a safe event! There will be signs and course monitors at every turn, and they will keep you on course. There will be water on the course, and medical personnel present. Please do your part to keep us safe, too. That means being aware of other runners, and if you’re not planning on winning the race, please leave room for others to pass you. This is particularly important at the finish line! Also, while we don’t prohibit headphones or strollers, if you plan to use these, you must use extra caution. And, no sudden herky-jerky movements to the side, please, as someone may be flying past you at the wrong time.

Things we do prohibit: dogs, roller blades, ice skates, bow-and-arrows, rocket-propelled shoes, remote-controlled helicopters, etc. Help us out here, folks.
