The run is now a 5K that begins at the Eastham Library and winds down scenic Samoset Road to First Encounter Beach and then returns.

This is an open course; limited traffic may be present.

On the route, participants will enjoy views of Eastham’s lovely ponds and historic houses as they wend their way towards Eastham’s beautiful marshlands and bayside.

The turnaround point, at First Encounter Beach, is the location of the first encounter between the Pilgrims and the Native Americans.

Be sure to soak in the gorgeous expanse of Cape Cod Bay before returning to the library.
