Bill Rodgers's favorite places to run in NE
Farm Pond Loop in Sherborn
I lived in Sherborn for about twenty-three years and have logged many miles on the rolling roads of the town. The lanes are beautiful and shady and the scenery ranges from fields to farms to forests. In any season the place is so varied and interesting that it often helped make the sometimes long miles of training there much more enjoyable. My favorite course we called the Farm Pond Loop. You can park anywhere in the center of town and head East on Route 16 for about a mile until you reach Lake Street. The road then winds through the woods and farms with beautiful views of the water of Farm Pond. Circling Farm Pond and back to town is a 9 to 10 mile run. Friends from Arizona. once described this course as a religious experience. Id have to agree.
