Kicking off the series, this springtime run is a nice comfotable course through Gardner. A slight incline along West Broadway turning onto a tree tunneled route for some nice shade,
looping back for a gentle downhill run back to Fitness Concepts!
A refreshing shaded trail run to kick off the summer! This run is a fast, flat course to get you in the mood for trail running and taking in the beauty of the State Forests in our very own backyard!!!
Fitness Concepts and the Gardner Ale House get Octoberfest running with Run for a Beer! This 5K takes you on a challenging jaunt through the streets of Gardner! Taking off from Fitness Concepts, runners head toward downtown Gardner through the cheers of supporters, turning up hill leading to Memorial Park turning right for a quick downhill into the Octoberfest festivities that await at the Gardner Ale House!
A scenic downhill first mile turning into a beautiful trail run with rolling hills. Along the trail are some exposed rocks and roots - be sure to watch your footing! Coming out of the trail is a nice dirt road stretch that leads you to an uphill challenge for the finish.
