The 2017 Race for Open Space was held on Saturday July 8, 2017

at the

Milestone Cranberry Bog

2 mile walk / 5k race



The Race For Open Space was held at the Foundation’s Milestone Cranberry Bog! Our new course, The Jog In The Bog, was held entirely on Foundation-owned property: no public roads, no traffic, no parking limitations, and unlimited open space vistas! Organized by the Nantucket Conservation Foundation Associates, this 5K (3.1 miles) race or 2 mile walk annually attracts serious runners, casual joggers, walkers and those who are simply avid conservation supporters. Proceeds from the Race go to the Foundation’s Land Fund which helps to preserve and protect the Island’s invaluable open spaces.
