Remember: Spring Ahead this weekend: Move your clocks one hour ahead Saturday night.


The start of the Courthouse O’Putnam 5K will be delayed one hour to 2:00 pm, and all race day activities will be pushed back one hour to help ensure participant safety.

We are closely monitoring Sunday’s weather forecast. Together with our partners in Putnam, we have determined a delayed start can help ensure participants and volunteers a safer arrival and provide our operations crew adequate time to clear any weather-related hazards.

If any further adjustments need to be made, notices will be posted on HMF Events Facebook, and to the HMF emergency text alert system and sent to registrant emails by 8:00 am on Sunday.

Please share this update with family and friends who are participating. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding as we work to produce a safe and enjoyable event for all.

#OPutnam Take a drive to the northeast corner of Connecticut for a fun 5K that starts and finishes in picturesque downtown Putnam. The loop course along the Quinebaug River finishes in front of the Courthouse Bar & Grille, where the post-race party tops off the Irish celebration. Costumes definitely encouraged!

Bring your little leprechauns for the Wee Mile, a ¼ or ½ mile race for kids ages 2-11.

All participants receive a custom finisher’s medal, an Irish inspired hoo-rag, an ice cold beer (21+ with valid ID) and a hot corned beef sandwich on a pretzel bun, handmade on site at Courthouse Bar & Grille.

Putnam is a jewel of New England antique shopping destinations. Plan to spend race afternoon exploring all of the unique nooks and crannies with great eateries and shops throughout the town.

Take on the Lucky Challenge- run all 4 O’races across Connecticut and earn the big bling! DETAILS
