_ The 2020 Pendleton 5K and 5 Miler (on the Rail Trail):
The Pendleton 5k + 5M on the Rail Trail is a fun, flat, and fast race along the Passagassawakeag River. We welcome both runners and walkers, children in strollers, dogs on leash and the Rail Trail is wheelchair friendly. There are two water stops and live music at the 5k turnaround (5 mile folks need to keep going!). Everyone is welcome to join whether you want to set a personal best or are part of a relaxed family group out for a healthy stroll.
