About This Activity

The Auburndale Community Association is a non-profit organization founded to promote Auburndale village in the city of Newton, MA. The ACA hosts the Rove the Cove 5k road/trail race. This year all proceeds from the race will go to support the Auburndale Community Library - our local library run by volunteers. The race starts and finishes in the picnic area of The Cove. Plenty of parking, bathroom facilities, t-shirts, water stations, and prizes raffled at the end. This event is sanctioned by USA Track & Field.   Course  The course runs on wooded trails and winds through neighborhood streets. Expect gravel, roots, rocks, and possibly mud on trail sections if it's been rainy. Dogs on leash are allowed. Baby joggers are allowed but there are many trail hazards, so be aware! Also, we will ask runners with baby joggers and dogs to move to the back during the start. Water stations at start, mile 1, mile 2, and finish.   Awards  Post race raffle. We raffle off gift certificates donated by local businesses. You don't have to win the race to win a prize!!
