About the Race

The Scarecrow Classic 5K is celebrating its 7th year running! Join us on Sunday, October 20, 2019 in beautiful Lincoln, Massachusetts. The 5K course winds through the scenic roads, fields and trails of this historic New England town. Last year we had an enthusiastic crowd of more than 550 participants who loved the varied terrain and beautiful scenery of the course. Proceeds from this event support the Lincoln Land Conservation Trust (LLCT). LLCT helps manage over 2000 acres of land and nearly 80 miles of public trails as a regional recreational resource for the Greater Boston Area. This non-profit organization is one of the oldest land trusts in the country and is recognized nationally for its conservation work.

Scarecrow Classic Raffle

The Lincoln Land Conservation Trust (LLCT) conducts a raffle as part of the Scarecrow Classic 5k to raise additional funds for land conservation efforts. To buy raffle tickets, ask an LLCT trustee or visit the LLCT office at 145 Lincoln Rd. Suite 102A (above the Post Office at Lincoln Station). Raffle tickets can also be purchased on race day. Raffle winners will be drawn during the event. Raffle winners who aren’t present at the race will be able to find their ticket number, first name, and prize pick-up information posted online after the race.


bring your own water bottle

Bring your own water bottle! The LLCT works to reduce the use of single-use plastic water bottles at the race. Please bring your own, water-filled bottle to the race. (We hope to see lots of Scarecrow Classic water bottles from the 2017 race!) Place your water bottle at the finish line ahead of time and it will be waiting for you post-race. LLCT will provide labeling supplies as needed, a hydration station for re-filling bottles, and limited emergency water supplies for those without a water bottle.

NEW Composting!

City Compost

LLCT is continuing to green the race by composting. That means your cups, spoons, bowls, and napkins will all be composted. The final composted material will go back into the soil to grow food in Massachusetts.
