ALT's 7th Annual 5K "Race for Open Space"

Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 8.31.13 AM.pngOn November 1, you can run or walk for 5K (3.1 miles) along the Aquidneck Land Trust scenic Sakonnet Greenway Trail — maybe win a cash prize — and support the work of the ALT.

The 7th annual "Race for Open Space" is Aquidneck Island's premier partial trail race, and features a 5K cross-country loop starting from the Brown House at Glen Farm in Portsmouth.

The $20 entry fee supports the operations of the ALT and maintenance of the nature trail, the largest on Aquidneck Island.

Everyone is welcome, whether you're a serious runner (based on last year's results, you'd better be clocking 19-minute times if you're after the $100 prize) or you just want to enjoy a family walk along this beautiful trail (leashed dogs and strollers can participate in the walking category).

Visit ALT for more info and registration link.
