Registration for Fall Cross Country

The Bridgewater Recreation Commission is accepting registrations for the fall, 2014 cross country running program. The cross country running program, entering its tenth season, is set to begin on Saturday, September 6. The program, which is open to Bridgewater youngsters entering grades 5-8 in the fall, will take place every Saturday morning, from 9:00-10:00, continuing through November 1. Runners will meet and warm-up at Bridgewater State University’s Tinsley Center (behind Swenson Field) and then run on the trails on Great Hill. The program will be directed by Sam Baumgarten, Kim Larcom, and Joe Gillis. Sign up forms are being distributed through the schools and will also be posted on the Town website ( and the track/cross country site, ). For additional information, contact the Recreation office at 508-697-8020 or call Sam at 508-697-6848.

For the 2014 season, a new program option will be available. Those youngsters who are interested in competitive opportunities may choose to be part of the new Bridgewater Blazers Cross Country Team. Joining the team will require an extra mid-week workout on Wednesdays, from 5:00-6:00 p.m., a commitment to attend selected cross country meets, and some additional costs for entry fees to meets, separate shirts and/or sweat suits to represent the team, and travel to meets.

Also, looking ahead, the Commission will be sponsoring the 35th annual Bridgewater Kids Road Race, tentatively set for Sunday, October 5, at 2:00 p.m. The one mile race is open to Bridgewater children in grades K-8. Sign up forms for the road race will be available in the schools in early September and will also be posted on the websites.
