This epic shoreline adventure is set up for teams of three or solo participants to take on legs of about 3 miles each along a road course and a trail course totaling 30K (~18.6 mile). With a centrally located exchange zone, all participants start together, rotate between road and trail courses in the same pattern, and cross the same finish line. The relay is the first event in the USATF-CT Mountain, Ultra and Trail (MUT) series — a competition for teams of three to run the trails with a chance to win prize money. 5K solo option now available!
Explore the natural beauty on well-marked roads and trails within Rocky Neck State Park, including the Bride Brook salt marsh, the historic stone Ellie Mitchell Pavilion and the Four Mile River tidal area.
Participants in the team and 30K solo divisions will earn a commemorative crew neck sweatshirt, custom designed finisher medal and complimentary finish line photo.
