Simsbury River Run 5K and 10KFor 20 years the Simsbury-Granby Rotary Club has sponsored The River Run 5K and 10K races. And what a great run it has been for all of the participants and the community. 2015 is no exception and with your help we can continue this great Simsbury tradition. All proceeds from the River Run go to college scholarships for local Simsbury and Granby High School seniors as well as other great causes.

We are excited to announce that the registration area will again be at Simsbury Meadows next to the Rotary Park Playground and that both races will start and finish on Iron Horse Boulevard.

Gulf Beach Half Marathon & 5k @ Silver Sands State Park Boardwalk
Sep 19 @ 8:00 am – 12:15 pm

Set for its 3rd annual running along Connecticut’s southeastern coast as summer is giving way to fall in 2013, Milford’s Gulf Coast Half Marathon & 5K takes runners on an out-and-back tour of this stretch of the Long Island Sound, from Milford Harbor and Gulf Pond to Silver Sands State Park, and down to Cedar Beach and back.

The entire course is basically fast and flat all the way from the starting line at the Gulf Beach Recreational Area along Gulf Street in Milford, to the turnaround point at Cedar Beach. With the exception of stretches along the first couple of miles, which unfold along the city streets that surround Milford Harbor, most of the rest of the race lies right along the coastline, giving runners views of the Long Island Sound for most of the race.

Runners will get to run across part of the newly constructed boardwalk in Silver Sands State Park, which connects the park with nearby Walnut Beach. There is also a second detour away from the coastline at just before the mid-way point of the race, as runners head off Seaview Avenue and onto 5th Avenue and then Milford Point Road, before re-joining Seaview for the remainder of the way to the turnaround point.

Once runners reach Cedar Beach, they then head back northeast along Seaview, all the way back toward Milford along the route they’ve just run, where they’ll cross the finish line back on Gulf Street. The starting time for the half marathon is scheduled for 8:00 AM, followed by those running the 5K at 8:15 AM.
