5th Annual Bristol Half Marathon and 10K

August 13, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Event Navigation

If you’re a sports fan who watches ESPN, you’ll likely get a kick out of this late-summer race, which benefits Fisher House Connecticut and unfolds along a loop route in Bristol, Connecticut.

The mission of this Bristol-based nonprofit organization – whose tagline is “helping heroes, helping families” – is to build and maintain long-term housing for the families of seriously injured soldiers near military and VA hospitals around the country.  To date, they’ve built more than 50 Fisher Houses nationwide, and save the families of military veterans lodging and transportation costs during their family members’ hospital stays.

Runners start the out-and-back course for the race just west of downtown Bristol, along Clark Avenue (Starting Location is at HEALTHTRAX, 842 Clark Avenue, Bristol).  From there, the course follows a counter-clockwise route through the city, with stretches that wind through Rockwell Park, through the heart of Bristol and along Memorial Boulevard for a long out-and-back in Memorial Boulevard Park. Then the runners head back into the more residential areas past Birge Pond and the Hoppers Area, then back around Hill Street, James P. Casey Road, and back to the finish line.  Pancake breakfast for all runners and volunteers after the race.

Kids Fun Run is $5, 10K $45 per person, 1 Individual Half Marathon is $60
