The race will start on Mile Hill Road in Westminster MA near the intersection of Route 140, and finish at the summit of DCR Wachusett Mountain. Rising above the surrounding forest to a height of 2006 feet, Mount Wachusett stands as a unique landmark within the central New England landscape. From the summit, a clear day reveals views of Mt.
