All donations received will be evenly distributed between the Appalachian Mountain Club, Department of Recreation and Conservation, Essex County Trail Association, and Greenbelt: Essex County's Land Trust, four organizations who are helping steward the trails at Willowdale State Forest and surrounding trail networks in the region.
The Trail Animals Running Club is the original trail running club of the Boston metro area now with members from all around the world. We aim to act as community stewards by providing equitable access to trail running and promoting positive trail running culture. Our event profits are donated to land conservations & trusts in support of our trail running passion. We welcome people of all races, nationalities, ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities & expressions, ages, and abilities, who've come to share their love for running.
