Genesis Battlegreen Run

The Genesis Battlegreen Run is somewhat-hilly road race through the historic town where armed Americans first stood up to the British army, firing the “Shot Heard Round the World” at the Lexington Battle Green.

The race has two courses–a 5K and a 10K. Both courses feature hills that make a PR unlikely…and both bring the runners past the Lexington Battle Green.

After the race, local restaurants reward the runners with excellent sandwiches, pizza, pasta, salads, and other fare–some of the best post-race food to be found anywhere.

Come! Run with me now…

Lone Gull 10K

The Lone Gull 10K is exactly what you might imagine when you envision a race along the New England Coast. Nearly 700 runners race through the salt air, past an expanse of blue ocean and white spray…and then sit down to a hearty breakfast.

After the race and the breakfast…be sure to hang out to enjoy some late-summer rays and surf at Good harbor Beach!

Come! Run with me now…

Irish American Road Race in Malden, MA

At the Irish American Road Race in Malden, you run a very fast 5K or 10K course…and then enjoy what feels like a big block party. There are free hot dogs and soft drinks (and beer for the adults)…plus big slices of pizza at $2.00/slice. Irish music fills the air and everyone has a great time!

I ran the 5K barefoot, and loved every step of the course.

Come! Run with me now…

Bridge of Flowers 10K

For years I had heard about the Bridge of Flowers 10K–a challenging race in Shelburne Falls, MA. (Hint: any time a town has “Falls” in the name, you know there will be hills!) I knew it was a great race, but it always seemed too far away, so I had never run it.

This year my friend Dawn, a 2009 USATF-NE Mountain Goat, invited me to run it with her. (Thanks, Dawn!) So we joined about 700 other runners and ran through a bright scrubbed town that was postcard-perfect.

As you can see from the photos and HD video below, the Bridge of Flowers 10K is a beautiful race, But the photos and video won’t show you the great warmth of the town: it feels as if everyone in Shelburne Falls is thrilled to have us join them in their home. They cheer and applaud from their front yards and all along the main street of the town.

Come! Run with me now…
