Bowman Adventure Run

BowmanLogo-2copyBowman Adventure Run

This year’s Adventure Run will take a different format than in past years. We will not be having a Fall run in 2019. Please stay tuned for more info.

Past info:

It’s a road race. It’s a trail run. It’s a super way to spend an autumn Sunday with your friends, family and Bowman Community. There’s something for everyone. Lace ’em up for the Kids Fun Run. Enjoy the 5K by running or walking through the Bowman neighborhood and its Big Backyard, followed by post-race festivities. Come join the Adventure! New this year!  In an effort to reduce plastic waste at the post-race celebration, we are asking everyone to bring their own reusable water bottles.  There will be water refilling stations available. Thanks for helping to make this run greener!

Post Race Party to Follow

About the Course
This unique 5K will take off from Bowman, lead you through the rolling hills of the neighborhood and onto Bacon Street, a gravel road leading to Dunback Meadow. The last mile covers boardwalks and trails that are part of the extensive conservation land in Lexington. You will then cross the Bowman fields and the finish line on Worthen Road East. Click here to view the 5K and Kids Fun Run courses.

Please note: this adventure is for all ages but if you are under the age of 11, please participate with an adult.

Kids Fun Run
The KFR will take place before the 5K so all you parents can cheer on your kids and run the 5K. The 3/4-mile course leaves from the front entrance of Bowman down Worthen Road East to Philip Road and back to Bowman. No registration necessary, just visit the registration table before the run to sign a waiver.
