10th Annual Rove the Cove 5k
will be held SATURDAY, JUNE 25, 2016
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 be given to the Auburndale Community Library. The ACL is a volunteer-run organization.
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. The course runs on wooded trails and winds through neighborhood streets.
All fitness levels welcome! You can walk or run. Push the kids in a baby jogger. Our insurance coverage discourages the use of personal music devices (phones, ipods, mp3 players, etc.) during the race.
Please note that prizes are awarded through a random raffle, not your finishing place. Anyone can win!!

Excellent for viewing!
The course was wheel-measured.
The course starts on the park trail and heads south to Commonwealth Ave. and then makes a loop in the Islington neighborhood. The course then retraces the trail back into the Park, passing the start line before heading out to the Staniford area. The course then heads back into the park and finishes at the picnic area. Water stations at mile 1, mile 2, and finish.
