Course details:

The 5K and 10K courses cover a variety of surfaces throughout the Waterford National Historic Landmark. Runners should expect rolling hills, mostly trails and gravel roads with some paved roads and the possibility for mud.

**Please note: the 5K, 10K, and Fun Run courses include the Phillips Farm Interpretive Trail. We have recently confirmed the presence of invasive poison hemlock on the trail. This plant is toxic to humans and pets. To avoid injury, please stay to the center of the marked trail and do not touch the plants along the edges of the trail. Do not allow children to touch the plants or pick flowers along the trail. Find more information about poison hemlock here.**
