About The Race

Over the EskerOur third and final event in the series is the reconfigured “Over the Esker” run at Great Esker Park in North Weymouth on Saturday, Oct 11th. In the past this was an extremely difficult hill run but it’s been tamed to include just one hill. Soon after the start the new course will travel down the Esker and along the shore of the Back River where runners will cross a narrow stream and an unusual reversing falls. After the race we’ll head next door to Margarita’s for appetizers and a free beer.
