Shelburne Falls, MA
The initial 3k loop begins with a gradual climb from the village center’s historic 1890 iron bridge, where everyone lines up for the start. It then winds through neighborhood streets. The 10k race is a figure 8 loop, and the second loop passes over the same iron bridge, followed by the renowned 1k Crittenden Hill. The well-earned descent that follows is a gravel shaded mile, followed by flats and downhills to the finish under the arch on Bridge Street. The sixth mile is downhill, and the whole course is very spectator friendly.
