The Harvard Pilgrim Middletown Half starts and finishes on Middletown’s Main Street, selected as “the most romantic Main Street in the U.S.” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. This artful Main Street is brimming with swanky restaurants, cool bars, an award-winning local chocolatier, a delectable cupcake bakery and much more.
And we’ve added the Legends 4-Mile run so we have a distance for every runner! A post-race, street party with local food and drink caps off a great race in a great place.
For 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.
A race to benefit the No-Freeze Hospitality Center
The course starts and ends at the Jillson Square in downtown Willimantic, with plenty of parking. Runners will begin by heading down Main Street and cross the Willimantic River on their way to Columbia and Lebanon. Leaving the road for a short time, participants will run the historic “Airline” rail trail for nearly a mile before returning to the road. Heading back into Willimantic, participants will run over the famous Frog Bridge and along Jillson Square in front of cheering spectators on mile 6, before heading to the West end of Willimantic. Leaving Willimantic again, runners will head North through picturesque pastures in Mansfield on miles 9 and 10. Mile 11 brings runners by the ECSU sports complex. Coming in flat and fast, miles 12 and 13 run South on Ash and Jackson streets, for a finish at Jillson Square.
The race is chip-timed, and finishers receive custom pint-glasses. Short-sleeve tech shirts will be given to runners who register prior to April 1, 2014. Dominos pizza is providing the post race food. 4 water stations will be available on the course. Medals will be given to the top three finishers in each age/gender category.

This adventure race, “Try Simsbury: River to Ridge Try-athlon,” will start with an ambitious 3.6 mile “River to Ridge” running/hiking segment, from the banks of Farmington River up some challenging new trails that enter Penwood Forest, gain about 400 feet in elevation, and provide lovely views from the ridge of the valley below. The next segment will be a 11.5 mile bicycling course, comprised of two loops on country roads and a short segment on the Farmington Valley Greenway. In lieu of swimming, the final component of the race is an approximately two-mile loop on the Farmington River – paddling upstream first and then back, thereby crossing twice under Simsbury’s landmark Flower Bridge….a great place for spectators!
