Sunday, March 24
Scandinavian Club, Fairfield (South Pine Creek Road)
Limited to 150 runners *
Again this year: Half-Blowout 15 km
and NEW "Little Puff" 5 km
If you're prepping for Boston (or any other spring
and want to do a long run with some company and comfort, this is it.
We've found some of the flattest, most scenic roads around lower Fairfield
and mapped out a cloverleaf course that's about as easy as 30 km can be.
Records: Jon French 1:42:05, Dana Parrot 1:59:05.
Masters: Joe Puopolo 1:49:11, Mary Chute 2:02:08
NOTE: The finish line will remain open until 3:06:24 (10 min. pace).
Those planning to run slower please start early - course maps available.
Starts and finishes at the Scandinavian Club on South Pine Creek Road (past the par 3 golf course).
I-95 to exit 21, south to Rt. 1, right to South Pine Creek Rd. (Sunoco and Mobil stations), left for one mile

Check-in starting 6:30 a.m. $20 post entry if 150 runner limit hasn't been reached.
Not up for the full 30? Once again, we'll offer a single-loop "Half Blowout" 15 km option.
And if you want to go fast and huff and puff, we're adding a fast 5 km "Little Puff" - same basic course as the Holiday Run for Kids
