Wahaneeta 5K Trail Run

Saturday September 17th

Start times

8:00am:  Registration opens
9:00am:  5K race starts

Course Description

The terrain of the course is entirely dirt trails, with some technical single-track. In order to minimize bunching up at the race start, the course will first run across a short grass field before continuing on double-track for approximately one-half mile. Most of the rest of the course will be on single-track and include challenges such as stream crossings on narrow wooden bridges, hills, and rock gardens. During the course of the race, you will cross streams multiple times, with most but not all having bridge crossings. The course is very spectator friendly, as the start/finish is in the same area, and during the course of the race runners will pass through the start/finish area twice before finishing.  Runners and walkers are welcome.

Location

5K course starting and finishing at Wahaneeta Preserve.  Purchased by the Westerly Land Trust in 2012, this is a 72-acre conservation property that was run as “Camp Wahaneeta” by the Girl Scouts of RI from 1941 to 1996.
