On Saturday, May 18th join us for our 3rd Annual Run for Conservation at Myles Standish State Park’s Charge Pond camp site! The start time for the Run for Conservation is at 9 AM sharp. Please show up 30-45 minutes in advance to allow enough time to pick up your bib number. Day-of registration is possible, but note that the cost of registration goes up.
Every day 22 acres of land disappear in Massachusetts. That’s roughly 17 football fields of land being developed, cleared for retail space, or wildlife habitats divided up for roads. Many of these lands are essential to sustain native and migratory wildlife, safeguard our drinking water supplies, and provide recreational opportunities for people to enjoy the outdoors. Wildlands Trust has been actively protecting open spaces in southeastern Massachusetts since 1973. To date we have protected over 6,500 acres of land in 34 towns. The Run for Conservation is an opportunity for you to support our mission of land conservation and connecting people to the land.
Okay, I’m convinced that I want to participate, but what kind of course am I tackling? The course is a half-road half-trail loop, meaning that you’ll run one section on pavement and the other portion will be dirt or beach (easier on the knees but tougher on traction!) The final stretch you’ll have to climb a hill but don’t worry, it’s not too big or too bad and in no time you’ll be flying across the finish line. For the ladies and gentleman who prefer to run barefoot or in Vibrams, we’ve got a special barefoot division just for you.
