The Trail Animals Running Club (TARC) is the original trail running club of the Boston-metro area. Founded in the 1990s, the club’s membership consists of men and women, who enjoy and participate in the sport of ultrarunning and trail runs. Members are from all over the United States with a concentration of runners in New England, Upstate New York and Canada.
Many members get together on weekends to run trails or compete in and/or organize trail running events. Our “home base” is the Blue Hills Reservation in Milton, Ma. Members also run on trails in western, southern and northern suburbs of Boston including our second “home” in the Middlesex Fells in Stoneham, MA - and increasingly we have running groups forming in all New England states.
