The Inaugural Rail Trail 10K Race is being held on Saturday, October 7th at 8am. Our 10K course is 100% on the Rail Trail with no cars and not street crossings. Flat and picturesque out-n-back running through Fall's natural beauty. The Start and Finish is the same as our Hamden Hills Half Marathon & Flat 5K which is the Sherman Avenue Rail Trail lot in Hamden across from the Quinnipiac University York Hill Campus. Chip timed for accuracy, Long Sleeve Cotton Race T-Shirts to all entrants. Gatorade and Poland Spring Water at Mile 2 and Mile 4. Fresh Bagels and Bananas at the Finish! Our new Real-Time system allows for award winners to get their award immediately after they finish. Just grab your race receipt from the timing table and bring it to the award table. Top 3 Overall (M&F) and in 10 year age divisions win a custom race pilsner. Register with a Team and compete to win prizes!
Make sure to come and run this Inaugural 10K and make it a Tradition.
