Upcoming Event: Tuff Ten Trail Race - 10/17/2010

WHAT:  Tuff Ten Trail Race (10k)
WHERE: Breakheart Reservation, Saugus, MA (very conveniently only a couple minutes off route 1)
WHEN:  Sunday, October 17th, 2010, 10 a.m. Start
WEB: http://toughtentrailrace.blogspot.com/ 
Howdy folks, just a quick plug for an upcoming first ever trail race on the trails of Breakheart Reservation in Saugus, MA.


Trust me, if you make the trip you will not be disappointed!  The tough ten will be a 10 kilometer jaunt over all of the types of terrain that the Breakheart Reservation has to offer.  The intrepid runner will get to see the softer side, with nice single tracks of forest floors carpeted in pine needles, to rugged climbs to the top of one of the many vistas that should provide a clear view of the Boston skyline.


Here are a few shots of some of the trails and scenery from my training run at Breakheart around this time last year:





Proceeds for this race will go towards the continued preservation of the suburban trail running gem, which is all the more reason to come out and enjoy some fantastic trails so close to the city.  Seriously, where else can you run some rugged trails with a decent amount of a challenge and then be enjoying some pasta or pastries in the North End less than 30 minutes?


This will be a great take, and the RD is a REAL trail runner, so you know it'll be good!

Rob,

Hi. I'm trying to put together a group of runners/outdoorsy people to share experiences via blogging. I just started my blog recently. BTW, I love trail running too-Soapstone Mountain, Nipmunk. etc..

Stop by my blog and say hello.
