Sunday - June 7, 2015


Iron Horse Boulevard, Simsbury, CT

Start Time:  10K 7:30, 5K & Half 7:45, Kids 10:30

Note:  Road Closures occur prior to first event.


The Half Marathon will be limited to the first 1200 registered runners; 10K will be limited to the first 600 registered runners; and the 5K will be limited to the first 500 registered runners.

WHY? We have been thrilled to see the popularity of this event grow over the past several years. However, to enable us to continue to provide you with a top-notch race with a small town atmosphere we feel we must now limit the number of runners in both the Half Marathon and 10K races.

WHEN WILL THE RACES FILL UP? We do not know when or if the races will fill up. When we have less than 100 spaces left in a race we will post notices on our website announcing the number of remaining registrations available.
