A local XC running tradition
SMAC 5K Cross Country Races resume in the traditional format on Tuesday May 25, on the 5K X-C course near the Community Gardens on Burts Pit Road in Northampton. The start time is 6:30pm, and the cost is $5, participants under 18 run for free.
It is an accurately measured 5 km cross-country course through beautiful fields and woods. The starting area is located just past the Northampton Community Gardens on Burts Pit Road, one mile from the center of town. We have averaged 79 finishers/race.
They will continue weekly through the last Tuesday in August, 2021.
There will be a staggered start to ensure social distancing, marked by small traffic cones to line up at. Participants must continue to abide by certain mask regulations. In cases where you are unable to maintain a distance of 6 feet from someone not in your household, please wear your face covering.
For any further information, please call Don Grant, race director, at (413) 584-7725.
