Join us for the 2022 Trail Animals Running Club Fall Classic at Great Brook Farm State Park! We have 10K, half marathon, 50K, and 50 mile distance options!
The DCR Great Brook Farm State Park in Carlisle, Massachusetts is stunning and is the perfect New England fall setting for running trails with friends. The 50K/50M & 10K/Half Marathon courses are both loops, relatively flat, 100% runnable and have the usual roots, rocks and other “trippables” with which to contend. This event is great for first time trail runners as well as veterans who want to set their PR. 50K and 50M participants start at 6:00 a.m., and the 10K and Half Marathon start at 8:00 a.m. 50K and 50M runners may want to start with headlamps/lighting (sunrise is at 6:20 a.m.). Mandatory trail briefing at 5:45 a.m. for the 50M/50K and at 7:45 a.m. for the 10K/Half Marathon.

Land Acknowledgement: The TARC Fall Classic is held on land that was originally called Musketaquid, an Algonquin word for “grassy plain,” and was home to the Musketaquid Indians, the original stewards of this territory. We encourage our participants to educate themselves on the history of the land we will be running on as well as the history of the land where you train and call home.
