Come experience the “dirty side of running.” Join us as we explore the numerous trail systems the Fells have to offer. You will jump over logs, stomp through mud, run over wooden bridges and see the simplicity nature has to offer. Jeff Barriss, owner of 0600 Conditioning, along with several other experienced trail runners, will lead the three runs over the next three months. This is the first (the other two are on Nov. 11 and Dec. 15).
On Oct. 14, we'll run on an excellent trail to begin trail running. The Reservoir Loop (a six mile loop marked by orange blazes) is in the Western Fells. It is fairly flat, and is a mixture of carriage roads and narrower trails. Meet at 7 a.m. off of Fallon Road (at the parking lot near the entrance to 93 past Friendly's in Stoneham).
