Boston Bulldogs Run for Recovery
A run organized by the Boston Bulldogs running group as a tribute to those who have lost their lives to addiction and their loved ones. The run takes place in Franklin Park and aims to help people recover and move on with their lives in a positive way.
Awards, celebrations, and a vigil will be held post-race.
The course follows Franklin Park's 5k cross-country course through open fields and trails.
The race incorporates three, approximately 1-mile loops through Franklin Park's picturesque fields and open trails. The first loop kicks off on the Franklin Park Playstead cross-country style, with the course cutting across the field towards Pier Point Road. After following Pier Point Road, participants merge onto Playstead Road, loop around George White Schoolboy Stadium, and re-enter Franklin Park's Playstead field. The second loop begins the same as the first, although with a detour up and over historic Bear Cage Hill. After returning to the Playstead from Playstead Road, the third lap goes across the field and into the winding and scenic trails of Franklin Park's Wilderness. After exiting the trails, the course then finishes off with a speedy dash around the Playstead's perimeter, with the final stretch parallel to Pierpont Road.
