The GBTC XC Festival is BACK! This year we will again have a Youth 2k, followed by a Women’s 5k (combined Open and Masters), Men’s Masters 5k, and Men’s Open 5k, all with great PIE PRIZES!
Don’t forget to stick around after the race for a complementary BBQ!

The DCR Elm Bank Reservation is a newly acquired park along the Charles River in Wellesley. See directions to the main entrance and a map. (The balloon pointing to the park on the map mentions Dover because part of the park is in Dover, but the main entrance to the park is at 900 Washington Street in Wellesley, so please use that address in your GPS for driving directions.

Please email with questions or for team entry deals.

Prior to 2012, the race was held at the Bradley Palmer State Park in Topsfield, Massachusetts, and was called the Bradley Palmer Cross-Country Club Challenge and the Topsfield Cross-Country Challenge in its early years. The race was an 8K three-loop course for the men and 5K for the women up Moon Hill and over several jumps and some dirt roads, over a spectator-friendly course perfect for bringing family and children.
