Description:

The Westford 5K is a fast, USATF-certified clockwise loop course that begins on Fisher Way near the Abbot School, a wide starting area. The 5K runners start at 2:20 p.m. heading south toward the town green. (The 10K, starting five minutes later, will begin by heading the opposite direction on Fisher Way.) All three events will be on closed, traffic-free courses, part of an exciting town happening. Both the 5K and 10K head toward the town common—quintessential New England—passing the Community Center and Town Hall on Main Street, then the 5K splits left on Lincoln Street, after which it crosses to Hildreth Road. There is a right turn on Flagg Road at 1.62 miles, heading northwest. At 2. 57 miles the course joins Forge Village Road, which then becomes Main Street. Then there is a fast, straight finish to the front of the J.V. Fletcher Library adjacent to the northern tip of the triangular town common.

The 10K follows some of the same rural roads, but is primarily a counter-clockwise loop which splits right at the common, heads west on Forge Village Road, followed by a left on Cold Springs, a right on Patten, and a hard left on Concord Road (Route 225). The half way mark is just beyond the turn onto Concord Road. There is a left on Hildreth at 4.15, and another left on Flagg a half mile later. From the turn on Flagg the course is exactly the same as the last 1.5 miles of the 5K, and to the same fast finish line.

Westford center sits on a ridge, so upon leaving the center there is some downhill, and upon returning to the common there will be a general up slope. But the last half mile is generally flat and very fast.
