Pam’s Run 5K
Pam's Run 5K

The 5K course is mostly flat as it winds through beautiful neighborhoods in north Wayland. At mile 2, there is one short hill (about .1 mile long). Thereafter, the course is mostly flat allowing for a fast finish. The course includes one water stop.

Please note that the 5K course runs long, at 3.4 miles. We have given consideration to adding a second timing mat to appropriately adjust the course length; however, in order to remain true to the fundraising spirit of this charity event, we have chosen to maximize the proceeds going to Neighbor Brigade and streamline our costs by having just one timing mat. The timing company will adjust pace per mile to reflect a 3.4 distance rather than a 3.1 distance.

The 10K course is well-shaded by colorful fall foliage and is mostly flat until a short hill at mile 2. The course continues through beautiful conservation land with a few small undulating hills on a country dirt road for approximately one mile.

After mile 3, the course turns onto Concord Road with rolling hills and a few long downhill stretches between miles 4 and 5. After a short climb at mile 5.5 on Claypit Hill Road, runners can kick in their final gear on this flat finish. The course includes two water stops.
