Clear Paths for the Runners!
Great news Boston runners! New Balance is renewing their contract with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) to bring you clear paths along the Charles River all winter long. While this is such awesome news for those of us training for Boston, please still proceed with caution. New Balance and the DCR advise runners and all who use the path to be careful.
"Because the route runs are in close proximity to the river bank, there is limited salting and sanding that can be performed."
Check out the full press release here.
Keep your eyes and ears open as New Balance will host events along the path during the winter where the company will showcase new products, offer winter running tips, provide giveaways, and interact with area athletes.
