Fall Race Series!  #4 of 4 races

Come join us at any or all of our four WTAC Fall Trail Races!

Burlingame State Park Picnic Area, 23 Sanctuary Road, Charlestown, RI

Start times:
8:30am:  Check-in and bib pick-up opens
10:00am:  4M and 8M races start

- Parking:  DEM picnic area parking lot (GPS: 23 Sanctuary Road, Charlestown, RI)
- Registration location:  inside cabin

Course Description:  The terrain of the course is primarily dirt trails, with some dirt and asphalt roads.  In order to minimize bunching up at the trail entrance, the race will first run just under under one mile on Sanctuary Road, a quiet dead-end dirt road with very little traffic.  At that point, the 8-mile course will branch to the right and follow single-track trails counter clockwise around Watchaug Pond, finishing back at the picnic area parking lot.  The 4-mile course will continue straight on Sanctuary Road, before branching off to trails in the DEM-owned Kimball Preserve, making a loop through Burlingame State Park campground, and returning to same start/finish via Sanctuary Road.   

RequirementEach participant and volunteer must wear at least 200 square inches of orange.  Anyone not wearing orange will not be allowed to race per State of RI DEM mandate.
