Colonel Leslie's March


Many of the roads of Marblehead and Salem have not changed since 1775.  You can follow the path of full resistance for either a 6 mile or 10.5 mile round trip.


These routes can be enjoyed at any time, but how fun to run this on the day of the original retreat. We are so lucky to have amazing history around every corner! We suggest that you read a little about the history and keep in your mind while you’re on the way. 


Below are the route suggestions:
