Starting on Tuesday, June 23 at 6am, I will run the Bay Circuit Trail starting at Plum Island (Newbury) and heading south until I reach Kingston Bay (Kingston).  I will travel the western split from Codman North (Lincoln) to Wayland Center and then northern split from Tubbs Meadow (Pembroke) to Kingston Bay.  The ~1-1.5 mile section along the Merrimack River between Burnham Rd. and the Stackpole St./Corrigan Ave. in Lowell in not maintained and currently overgrown/impassable.  To be as true as possible to the route, I will followed roads adjacent to the trail to connect these points, to the best of my ability.  This will be a supported effort.
