Bridgewater Recreation Commission Cross-Country Program

The Bridgewater Recreation Commission is accepting registrations for the fall, 2015 cross country running program. The cross country running program, entering its eleventh season, is set to begin on Saturday, September 5. 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 October 31. 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 ( For additional information, contact the Recreation office at 508-697-8020, call Sam at 508-697-6848, or e-mail Sam at

For the second year in a row, youngsters may opt for a competitive opportunity by joining the 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 36th annual Bridgewater Kids Road Race, tentatively set for Sunday, October 4, 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.
