Event Description: 

The Western Greenway (WG) Run/Walk  is a 5K (3.1 mile) trail route starting and finishing at Elsie Turner Field off Trapelo Road in Waltham.  The event will be one of ten separate races in the 2015 Race Around Waltham Series scheduled throughout the year.  The proceeds raised from the Greenway 5K will benefit RAW Series events and the Waltham Land Trust.

The route starts at Elsie Turner Field and enters the trail system into DCR's Beaverbrook North Reservation turning left at .35 miles heading toward the WG.  A right turn at .65 miles puts you on spur leading to the Greenway which is then followed for the next 1.1 miles while going over the wooden bridge connecting Beaver Brook North with Rock Meadow.  A 1-mile clockwise loop around the meadow crosses the bridge again and turns left off the WG and leads to the “Old Cemetery” as it is passed on your left at 2.6 miles and you begin to head back to Elsie Turner Field by taking a left at the “Y” intersection and returning along the “Out and Back” route.  The finish line is at the end of the field near the start.  This is a USATF Sanctioned Event.
