On Sunday it was the annual pilgrimage down to Bourne, Massachusetts for the Weary Traveler Road Race. This road race is a great $12 bargain of a road race that comes complete with a tough 4.87 mile course, hot chowder and clam fritters post-run and an all around great run early in the new year.
The race is a challenging 4.87 mile route that has some pretty good hills mixed into the run. In prior years there has been the added challenge of some cold and icy roads but this year the weather was great for running; a bit of a winter chill in the air but an all around perfect January day for running.
I finished the 2016 Weary Traveler Road Race with a time of 39:27, good for 8:05/miles.
Proceeds from the race benefits the Bourne Conservation Trust. Please check out this organization’s website for information on the amazing work they perform.
