Don’t Run Boston 50K & TARC 50M Fun Runs

See separate website for more info, trail maps and entry form here

NOTE: The trails for this event are unmarked.  It is strongly advised you run this event with either a veteran or after having thoroughly previewed/run the sections of the 50K or 50M course thoroughly. Otherwise you WILL get lost, frustrated, become starved and eventually be consumed by creatures of the Blue Hills 🙂
