NEW DISTANCES THIS YEAR!
NEW LOCATION FROM THE LITTLE PUB IN SCENIC LORDSHIP!
NEW ADULT HYDRATION PRESENTED BY LITTLE PUB IN STRATFORD!
With so many half marathons already on tap in Weston, Ridgefield, and Redding and many just finished in New Haven, Norwalk, and SoNo, we thought we'd change our distance offerings based on our unique date!
The date is 10/10 - SO WHY NOT A TEN MILER?
(We will drop the ‘year’. No way we are hosting a 21 miler)
Since we have a nice, flat scenic five-mile loop you could choose the five-mile distance as well.
THANKS TO THE LITTLE PUB IN LORDSHIP WE HAVE A NEW START/FINISH AREA WITH
SUDS AND FRESH SAND TO RELAX UPON WHEN YOU ARE DONE
NEW LOCATION: The Little Pub - 10 Washington Parkway in Stratford, CT. http://www.littlepub.com/stratford/
Pre Reg Online Race Fees: $25 - 5 miles $35 - Ten miles
For the first 75 entries in each event.
Fees increase $5 from participant #76 & over.
Fees automatically increase on race weekend.
Race Weekend Fees (online only - we will leave the registration open until the start, so you can wait until race morning to decide whether to run - but you'll pay more for procrastinating). State guidelines do not allow paper/cash registration

Check-in opens at 6:45 am at the picnic lot across from Little Pub. It is rain or shine.
NORMAL, MASS START
THE COURSE- Flat, scenic, pretty darn quiet roads. The loop includes a 4/10mi section of hard-packed grass trail around the perimeter of the Stratford Point CT Audubon Center! We are donating to this great organization and venue from this race and you can help!
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS- PLEASE RUN ON THE LEFT, FACING TRAFFIC, UNLESS FLOUR ARROWS ON ROAD INDICATE ON THE RIGHT. We need to follow state law and be careful- roads are open.
WATER & FLUIDS - WE NEED YOU TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR HYDRATION. PLEASE PREPARE TO BRING YOUR FAVORITE FLUIDS THAT YOU’LL HAVE ON HAND OR CARRY.
THERE WILL BE one location on our course where we will have water available- at the 5 mile mark of the 10 miler, which is the end of the 5 mile loop. We do not yet anticipate having a water table out on the course- but that could change. We will keep you informed.
IF you think you'll need water on the course we will have some bottles BUT you must ABSOLUTELY CARRY IT WITH YOU till you get to the finish or the split if you’re in the ten miler. Please understand we can’t have folks dropping anything in this neighborhood or we will not be allowed back. Thanks for your cooperation!
THERE WILL BE tables after the finish/5 mile split where you can leave your own, preferred fluids before the start. You can grab it on the way by if you’re running the half, or if you’re done with the five miler.
THERE WILL BE garbage cans so you can drop plastic bottles if you need to. REMEMBER our volunteers are there to help. We really don’t want them having to clean up garbage! Thanks for your help.
FOOD - you can count on bananas and granola bars at least!
We will also have award-winning, Stratford-based Athletic Brewing nonalcoholic craft brew, and other adult hydration.
BEER provided by LITTLE PUB for 21 and over ONLY
SWAG- Whatever we can find plus AWESOME LEFTOVERS- from other races we direct including great coffee mugs. But get there early while supplies last.
SHIRTS- Can be purchased for a low price after 9/14 through 10/3
MORE INFO- Limited parking & bathrooms, so arrive EARLY and ready to run. NO finisher's medals - you already have enough and we can keep the cost down! But if we have some good leftovers from other races you can take them!
SORRY- NO DOGS or other mammals or pets.
Multi-distance option. You can "downsize" from the ten miles to the five-miler any time, even during the race if you're not feeling great that day, but you'll need to tell our timer so he can transfer you in the database.
ADDED FEATURE- by participating in either event you will be eligible for discounts to other MSRP Races including the Great Pumpkin 5k in Trumbull on 10/17, the Weston Reservoir Half Marathon and 5k on 10/24, the Stratford Downtown Turkey Trot 5k Thanksgiving morning, and the Cow Chip cross country run at Trumbull High 11/27.
