2022 Course Revised AGAIN

The Greenway Challenge will be a "Down River" course

Starting line: Whitin Community Center (WCC), 60 Main St, Whitinsville, MA 01588

Finish line: Douglas State Forest, 107 Wallum Lake Rd, Douglas, MA 01516

Due to safety concerns from the drought, significant algae, and road construction, we need to modify the race course once again. We are sorry for any inconvenience. The good news is that it will be shorter, we will end earlier, we will be introducing a new trail run in Riverbend Farms, and we are removing the long bike leg of 25 miles from Wallum Lake to Lincoln Woods. Unfortunately, this means that the finish line is no longer at Lincoln Woods and we will now end in Douglas State Forest at Wallum Lake. We only have 7 segments instead of 8 for approximately 33 miles instead of 58 miles. We will also no longer be on the Blackstone Canal with a second paddle on Wallum Lake instead. Here is the revised course:
Segment 1 - Street Run from Whitin Community Center to Rice City - 3.6 miles
Segment 2 - Mountain Bike Course into West Hill Recreation Area - 5.5 miles
Segment 3 - Paddle from Rice City to Stanley Woolen Meadow - 1.8 miles
Segment 4 - Non-technical Trail Run at Riverbend Farm - ~2 miles
Segment 5 - Street Bike from Riverbend Farm to Wallum Lake - 13.8 miles
Segment 6 - Trail Run through Douglas State Forest - 3.7 miles
Segment 7 - Paddle in Wallum Lake - 3 miles
The details of the new course will be revealed at the Captain's Meeting next week. We have decided to make one Captain's meeting, instead of 2. This year's Captain's Meeting will be on Wednesday at 7:00pm in the Whitin Community Center's Conference Room, 60 Main Street, Whitinsville, MA.
 Segments 2, 3, 4, and 7 have changed.
