A Mile in Charlestown

Looking to get outside more now that spring has sprung? Take a walk around the Bunker Hill Monument! Start yourself with one lap and over time, steady yourself up to three. Three laps around the base of the monument square along the sidewalk is equal to one mile! Live closer to the Medford Street Track? Four laps around the track equals one mile.
