It’s that time of year again! Join us for this year’s Gorge après Gorge 5k Trail Run and Free Family Fun Walk on November 27th. This annual event is entering its 18th year, scheduled on the Sunday after Thanksgiving at the Chesterfield Gorge. This year, the walk starts at 9:30 AM and the 5k trail run starts at 10:30 AM.
Runners and walkers use a well-marked course with a beautiful view of the Westfield River. Hot beverages round off this event, which awards handmade hats to the winners (and maybe even some bonus categories this year!), and a locally baked cookie medal to all race participants.
A well-marked course, the dirt road/trail is a slightly hilly and rocky out and and back along the Wild and Scenic Westfield River, starting at the Chesterfield Gorge. Hot chocolate, coffee, and tea ready and waiting at the finish line.
