2019 Historic Waterford 5K/10K Trail Walk/Run

April 27, 2019 at 9:00 am

Transport yourself to yesteryear at the Historic Waterford Trail Run/Walk.  Bring your family and friends to experience a unique trail run through fields and trails in this National Historic Landmark, located in its original 1800s rural setting.  There will be something for everyone. Spend some time enjoying the beauty of an early American rural community!

Part of the allure of the Waterford environs is its historic purity.  Therefore, the trails are rustic and you may encounter a little mud… but that is half the fun!  Proceeds from the race benefit the Waterford Foundation.
