2 mile walk / 5K race

This year’s Race For Open Space will again be held at the Foundation’s Milestone Cranberry Bog! This will be the second year at our Jog In The Bog course,  held entirely on Foundation-owned property: no public roads, no traffic, no parking limitations, and unlimited open space vistas! Organized by the Nantucket Conservation Foundation Associates, this 5K (3.1 miles) race or 2 mile walk attracts serious runners, casual joggers, walkers and those who are simply avid conservation supporters. Proceeds from the Race will go to the Foundation’s Land Fund which helps to preserve and protect the Island’s invaluable open spaces.

Brian Sullivan is a proud sponsor of the Race for Open Space.
