Bowman Adventure Run

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 through the Bowman neighborhood and its Big Backyard.  Join us for the post-race festivities.
With Halloween around the corner, help us add to the festive air and come with wild and crazy hair!  We would love to see a mob of crazy hair running throughout the streets of Bowman and it’s community!
And beware..if the ghosts and goblins don’t get you, the mud may!

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
This year, 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.  It’s complete with a water stop and finisher awards.  Register the morning of the event to sign a waiver.  This year the KFR will be free.  Donations for Bowman will be accepted at the table.

* About Lexington Conservation Land
Lexington has more than 1,400 acres of conservation land, over 10% of the town, an impressive figure for a community so close to Boston. Conservation land provides the space to experience fresh air, green leaves, and the pleasure of a stroll through the woods right here in our own community. Conservation land also protects many beneficial functions that nature performs for us, such the flood control, water quality improvement, and air purification. And because all of Lexington was once farmland, forest, or wetland, conservation land helps to preserve the historic character of our town. When exploring Lexington’s conservation land, consider the hard work that many citizens and friends have contributed toward protecting and caring for these important properties. Conservation land is protected by the Conservation Commission and cared for by the Lexington Conservation Stewards, a group of citizen volunteers. Learn more
