Are you looking for a way to reduce anxiety, de-stress, and stay more focused? Research shows mindfulness benefits wellness and can shift our perspective toward a more joyous life. Every Thursday at 6:45a.m., Morana Lasic, M.D., an Anesthesiologist at Brigham & Women’s Hospital and longtime neighbor of the farm, leads a 30-minute session of “Mindfulness on the Farm.” Bring your mat, comfortable clothes and an open mind.
The Powisset Farm Trail Run is produced by Sun Multisport Events and is part of Barn to Run, New England's first and only farm-based trail race series. This race includes running the trails of Powisset Farm and neighboring Noanet Woodlands, offering four race distances to choose from: 8.3 miles, 5.6 miles, 3.1 miles and 1.5 miles (geared towards kids, but open to anyone).
All races begin and end at Powisset Farm near the main barn and utilize Powisset Farm's scenic Meadow Loop trail which is a very flat and grassy trail characterized by views of the farm, rock walls, hundred plus year old fencing and numerous bird boxes.
Runners in the 3.1, 5.6 and 8.3 mile races will also run the trails of Noanet Woodlands where footing varies from hardpacked dirt to sections with rocks, loose gravel and some exposed roots.
The 5.6 and 8.3 mile race include a short but steep climb (and descent) of Noanet Peak (387 feet) which offers a terrific view of Boston.
The 1.5 mile run is entirely on the grounds of Powisset Farm and will utilize the Meadow Loop exclusively. This run will start and end near the main barn.
ATTENTION WALKERS: Walkers are welcome to participate in the 3.1 mile race, but may not participate in the other races (including the 1.5 miler) due to the schedule of events and cut-off times.
