Beginner 5K with a Naturalist series begins May 2

Prescott Farm invites you to dust off the cobwebs of winter and the muck of mud season to get outside for a unique and inspiring challenge. Beginner 5K with a Naturalist is a new, six-week series for anyone interested in enjoying a fun, nature-based, fitness program. On Thursday evenings, May 2 – June 6 from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m., the trails at Prescott Farm in Laconia will become the training grounds for participants to achieve their personal goals.

Prescott Farm’s naturalist educator and running enthusiast, Andie Hession, is excited to welcome runners and walkers of all fitness levels. “It’s always inspiring to help people identify and achieve a goal – whether it’s walking their first 5K with confidence or running a new personal best time,” Hession said. “That we get to work toward those goals in such a beautiful place makes the journey even sweeter!”

In fact, the wonders of nature will be all around as participants train on Prescott Farm’s 160 acres of conservation land. With Hession as expert guide for both fitness and nature, runners and walkers will observe and learn about the sprouting gardens, historic farmhouse and barn, the maple sugarhouse, and the well-marked forest trails. The series is free for Prescott Farm members and $50 for non-members. For more information and to register, visit or call 603-366-5695.
