Course Information:

RUN

 

Our 5-K, non-certified, run in both Hopkinton and Brewster begins at 8 a.m. on paved, stroller or wheelchair friendly paved roadways within each of the state parks.  The routes, depicted in the map linked above, are clearly marked.  While a time clock is available at the start/finish of the run at both venues for all runners to time themselves, only the top 10 finishers will have their race times captured by event officials and listed on our event website post-event.

 

WALK

 

Our 3-Mile walk in both Hopkinton and Brewster begins at 8:10 a.m. on paved, stroller or wheelchair friendly roadways within each of the state parks.  The routes are depicted in the map linked above.

 

SWIM

 

Our 1-Mile swim event consists of either a competitive heat at 8:30 a.m. or a recreational heat at 9:30.  The routes are depicted in the map linked above.  In Hopkinton, the route consists of one lap around a portion of the Hopkinton Reservoir for those participating in the competitive swim and 2 laps around a smaller and a more shallow route for those participating in the recreational swim.  In Brewster, both the competitive and recreational swim routes are 1 lap around the perimeter of Flax Pond.  See these training tips to assist you in your preparations.  All swimmers will be in proximity to a safety kayak should the need for help arise.  While time clock is available on the beach at both events for all swimmers to time themselves, only times for the top 10 participants in the competitive swim are captured by event officials and listed on our website post-event.

 

 

KAYAK

 

Our 2-Mile kayak event begins at 10:30 a.m.  There are a number of complimentary kayaks available to our participants by our generous sponsors. However, this is a very popular event and to be guaranteed use of a provided kayak, you must register as early as possible to be assigned one. Outdoor Recreation is our Hopkinton kayak sponsor and Goose Hummock is our Cape kayak sponsor.  After all the complimentary kayaks have been reserved, you will need to bring your own kayak and, if enough volunteers are available on hand, we will also assist with unloading and loading.  We encourage anyone who has their own kayak to bring it for their own use at ATT as the donated kayaks from our sponsors tend to get reserved early in on-line registration.  The kayak routes are depicted in the map linked above.  In Hopkinton, the route consists of two laps around a portion of the Hopkinton Reservoir.  In Brewster, kayak route is 2 laps around the perimeter of Flax Pond.
