We will be hosting our annual Run of the Charles this year, but it is going to look a little different. We are working on putting together a fun, interactive, and engaging event! We had high hopes to do our beloved event in-person, but after meeting with our partners, we would not be able to run such a large-scale event that kept our participants and staff healthy and safe. We hope you will join us for this year's ROTC with a virtual twist!
Virtual Race Routes:
5 Mile Route
Historic Newton Boathouse to Moody street and back
11 Mile Route
Eliot Bridge to Lechmere Canal Park (counterclockwise turn around the fountain)
12 Mile Route
Charles River Park to Nahanton park (one way)
13 Mile Route
Charles River Canoe and Kayak launch, Millis to South Natick
RUN of the Charles 5K
For the first time, we are adding a virtual 5k to RUN the Charles! Lace-up your favorite kicks and run the banks of the Charles. CRWA Board of Directors and Board of Advisors compiled a list of their favorite watershed trails that we look forward to sharing with you.
After you complete your paddle or run please submit your results on the Granite State Race Services website. Results will be updated throughout the month at gsrs.com/raceresults
