MEDFIELD – New Life is excited to host its 5th annual Trail Run on Saturday, May 7 on the Medfield State Hospital grounds (at Hospital Road & ServiceDrive in Medfield).
The route winds through the beautiful Charles River Reservation, and the event is open to runners, walkers and everyone in between.
Many teams have already entered the Trail Run, including A Team, Eliot Church XC, GNRC, Iwaki America, MAKT, Millis UCC on the MOVE, Shamrock Shuffle, Soles of Medfield, UCC Medfield, Unicorn Amazing, and Westwood First Parish Church. These teams include runners from across Eastern Massachusetts. New teams are welcome and are easy to set up.
To celebrate being back in person after two years of virtual runs, New Life has partnered with the Cultural Alliance of Medfield to provide live music on race day. Also, the Furniture Matters club of Medfield High School will introduce a Kids Fun Run for children 4-10 years old.
Trail Run registration is open at www.newlifefb.org/5ktrailrun.
Registration is $30 until May 5; and $35 on race day.
On-site Kids Fun Run registration will be $5 (cash or check).
There is a $5 group discount for teams of four or more when the registrations are made at the same time.
On-site registration opens at 7:30 on race day.
The Kids Fun Run starts at 9 a.m., and the Trail Run starts at 9:30, with live music to follow.
The first 300 people to register will receive a t-shirt on race day.
The Trail Run benefits New Life Furniture Bank of MA and its mission to provide essential home furnishings to those in need. The Medfield-based not-for-profit organization operates a Walpole Donation Center, and serves the MetroWest and Greater Boston area. New Life provides a meaningful option for folks who are downsizing, renovating or disposing of a loved one’s property.
