Winters can be long in New England. Very long. In year's past, the Animals would shake off the sleepy eyes of a winter spent hibernating at the Spring Thaw. This year, the Animals will be crawling out of hibernation to welcome dirt and longer days, back at Hale Reservation, at the TARC: To Hale and Back 5k & 6-Hour!

Moved a couple of weeks later in March in the hopes that we can avoid feet of snow pack and maybe get a chance to feel some fresh dirt under our paws (er, shoes), the 6-hour race will now be held on March 25, starting at 8:05 AM. The 5K (TARC's first ever!) will get started 5-minutes prior, right at 8:00, to give all those super-fast people a chance to motor up ahead. 

So come on out, shake all that winter snow off your back, and join the pack to run To Hale and Back! AHHHHHWWWWOOOO!
This event will be (or is) sanctioned and insured by USA Track & Field - those guys are the best!
