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.
That was just a few snapshots, to give a you a taste. Now, come experience the entire race!
