The Lynn Woods Cross Country Races have been held during the summer for over 30 years. Started originally by the Lynn Park Department, the races are now administered and sponsored by the North Medford Club, North Shore Striders, and the Lynn AC.
Races are held on Wednesdays during June, July, and August. All but the last two weeks of the series (10 Mile Relay on August 20, 2008 and the Handicap) are free.
Each week we run 2 races - a short one of 2-3 miles and a longer one somewhere between 4 and 8 miles. Every week there are also a 1/4 mile and 1/2 mile races for children.
The courses are run mostly on dirt roads and trails. The beginning and end of each race is on 200 yards of pavement. Footing can be difficult in parts. All of the courses can be described as hilly and challenging. No cars are allowed within the Woods. You may encounter some mountain bikers or even a horse or two along the way.
