  • 7M, 3.7M

Type: Trail

First Year of the Event: 2004


These trail races follow rolling courses over dirt roads and forest paths in the Houghton’s Pond section of the scenic DCR Blue Hills Reservation, a few miles south of Boston. The routes avoid steep hiking trails, but these ARE trail races, with plenty of small rocks and tree roots along the way! Both courses are entirely on dirt.

The 7-MILE RACE will follow the same route as in 2017-2019.
The 3.7-MILE RACE was added in 2019. It follows portions of the 7-Mile race course.

Both races will start and finish adjacent to the Houghton’s Pond Visitor Center, overlooking Houghton’s Pond.

The races are directed by Colonial Road Runners. A portion of the race proceeds will be donated to Friends of the Blue Hills, which helps to maintain trails in the Reservation and serves as an advocate for the Reservation’s protection.
