The Selden Hills are calling! Are you ready to challenge yourself and amp up your training? If so, please join the growing number of runners doing just that on the tough 10k course that has hill upon hill for 5 demanding miles, followed by a flat, fast finish.
Members have the opportunity to participate in celebratory Birthday Runs, the Warrior of the Month friendly competition, Prediction Runs, and many more fun events.
Runners of all abilities are welcome. Our motto is no one runs alone. Contact us for more information.
Regular group runs are now Sundays at 8am. Please see the Calendar for special events and utilize the Facebook page to schedule all other group runs.

When Lou first asked me if I wanted to be WOTW – my immediate thoughts were Heck Yeah Napolean!!…it took all of 2 seconds before the panic set in though.

I would like to thank Karen Martella for bringing me to the hills for the first time. After my first brewery run I was intrigued by all the red “run for the hill of it” shirts and growing up on the south shore wondered where these “hills” were located. Continue Reading →
