Run or walk at the DNRT Trail Race

Oct 13, 2020

Strap ‘em up, lace ‘em up, and put  on your walking shoes — the Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust’s annual Trail Race is back, albeit in a modified capacity.  

Normally a 3.3 mile run only through Destruction Brook Woods, this year’s race will take runners and walkers through three different courses at Ridge Hill Reserve, and Frank Knowles/Little River Reserve, and Destruction Brook.

The annual event raises funds for the land trust’s mission of protecting Dartmouth’s natural resources.

Two race courses are offered: the “Triple Beanie Challenge,” which will have participants run/walk through all three trails, or the “Trail Race Challenge,” where only one trail is required to be completed.

Attendees can participate in the race any time throughout the month of November and each course can be run as many times as you’d like.

Portions of the Frank Knowles/Little River Reserve are owned by the Town and allow hunting. While it is unlikely that anyone will be hunting there, the DNRT encourages participants to wear blaze orange.

Participants who are running must use the Strava app to log time. When you are satisfied with your times, email them to to officially enter.

To register for the race, visit Registration for the “Trail Race Challenge” costs $25 and $35 for the “Triple Beanie Challenge.”
