Run the northeast corner of Connecticut in 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! #OPutnam
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.
Please help give back to the community that has opened their streets for participants. Donations of nonperishable food will be collected on race day through the HMF Can drive to benefit Putnam’s IHSP-Daily Bread Food Pantry, a small food distribution program which helps feed over 250 local families/individuals each month.
