The Annual Holdenwood Trail Run 2K/5K/10K trail run/walk is held on the last Sunday of September every year on the scenic trails of Holdenwood in Shirley, Massachusetts.

Wind your way through stone rock walls on pine needle covered trails as you enjoy the fall foliage. This trail run/walk is truly unique for its beautiful setting and sense of community. The idyllic Holdenwood trails  offer a mix of stone lined meadows, wooded trails, and several interesting features along the way including the Stone Crossing that make this event unique.

Thanks to the generosity of our hosts, the Holden family, the trails are prepared and groomed especially for this run. For those seeking a running challenge, the rolling hills and steep traverses will not disappoint !

No need to leave the kids at home - this is a family event. Children are encouraged to participate in the 2K or 5K run/walk.

Funds raised through the trail run will support the Ayer-Shirley Educational Foundation in its mission to enhance the educational excellence of our public schools.
