    Join Cape Ann Trail Stewards for a 5 mile trail race through Dogtown.  All participants will earn a one year membership to Cape Ann Trail Stewards with their race entry fee, and profits from this race go back to trails on Cape Ann. 
    New this year, the race will be starting from Rockport!  And also new for this year only (hopefully), we will be doing a virtual race over the course of Friday, Saturday and Sunday (12/11-13).  

    The course passes through unique landscapes that offer runners a technical, exciting terrain guaranteed to challenge even the most nimble runners. 

    Racers will enjoy running through much of Dogtown, past many cultural and natural features such as the cellar holes, Briar Swamp, Whale's Jaw and other interesting sites. 

    Membership fees are $25. Mail in forms available as well. 


    A course map will be posted on our website soon. Contact us with any questions. Visit our Facebook page for periodic updates and race day information.
