The 2nd Annual Boston Bulldogs 5K Run for Recovery at Franklin Park will be held on Sunday, May 7th. A tribute to those who have lost their lives to addiction and the family and friends who love them, the event was established to look back and honor those that we've lost, and to move forward in support of wellness and recovery.
The Boston Bulldogs 5K Run for Recovery will follow Franklin Park's premiere 5K cross-country course. The race incorporates three, approximately 1-mile loops through Franklin Park's picturesque fields and open trails.
The first loop kicks off on the Franklin Park Playstead cross-country style, with the course cutting across the field towards Pier Point Road. After following Pier Point Road, participants merge onto Playstead Road, loop around George White Schoolboy Stadium, and re-enter Franklin Park's Playstead field. The second loop begins the same as the first, although with a detour up and over historic Bear Cage Hill. After returning to the Playstead from Playstead Road, the third lap goes across the field and into the winding and scenic trails of Franklin Park's Wilderness. After exiting the trails, the course then finishes off with a speedy dash around the Playstead's perimeter, with the final stretch parallel to Pierpont Road.
