Fall for the Fells 2017
The Friends of the Fells’ 2nd Annual Trail Race & Family Fun Fest Presented by Whole Foods Market
Sunday, November 5, 2017, from Medford High School’s Athletic Fields
Love to run? Join us for this year’s Fall for the Fells Trail Race & Family Fun Fest on November 5, 2017 at Medford High School. Based on last year’s success, we are adding a 10k race to the docket. Not feeling the 10k? Don’t worry, we still have the 5k and 1k fun run. Along with the races, enjoy a fall family festival featuring food trucks, kids’ fun runs, Knucklebones, scavenger hunts, and more.
The race route begins directly behind Medford High School (489 Winthrop Street in Medford), at the Athletic Fields. The 5K starts directly at 1 p.m., the 10k starts at 1:45 p.m, and the 1k kids’ fun run will start shortly after that at ~2 p.m. Click here to view a map of the 5k race.
