The trial run will begin at The Boutwell Auditorium. There will be three water stations that will supply water, Powerade and Gu.
There is no sign up or entry fee for Sunday’s trial run. Anyone is welcome to participate. Runners are encouraged to arrive a few minutes early and meet in the lobby of Boutwell for final instructions.
