2016 Race Results
Thanks to all the runners who joined us for this weekend's road race! You helped us raise funds for contributions to the Eddy homeless shelter, Habitat for Humanity, and local food pantries! It was a hot day to run, although with the breeze and the humidity not being too oppressive, it wasn't our worst conditions, thanks again to Gil Simmons for his accurate forecast, and his promotion of the race on News Channel 8!

Due to a problem with the marking of the proper turnaround on Reservoir Rd. (about 2.5 miles into the race), some runners unfortunately ran beyond the certified four miles before it was corrected. For those who care to provide myself and the timer their actual distance run via their GPS watches, we will adjust your pace per mile and get it on the timer's website. Please send me an email at within 7 days of your actual distance run. Right now, the results as is are posted. We will make these adjusted results available for your use after a week has passed. Thank you for your understanding.

Luckily, most categories were obvious and where there was some doubt, the runners huddled with us and we agreed on the proper finish order....a testament to the true sportmanship that was on display! Having some extra bluberry pies also came in handy. The overall winner was Cameron Garrelts of Killingworth, taking both the overall honors and the first Killingworth finisher! The overall female winner was Heather Persichilli of Milford, (after agreement among the top 4 female finishers). We had ages ranging from 8 to 87 this year! Geoff Etherington of Killingworth held up his end doing a 41:07 at age 87!!

Thanks to all the runners, the net proceeds will help the Church's local charities they support with their mission budget...the Eddy Homeless shelter, local food pantries on the shoreline, the midnight run to New Haven program for the homeless, and other worthy charities. Thanks to all for having some fun and some exercise, and supporting a good cause at the same time!

We handed out 30 blueberry pies donated by Roberts Food Center (along with the water and bananas), and they were very welcome! We had several new key sponsors this year: Shoreline Auto Body, Premier Stone, and Bull Bag. We also had one sponsors, Be Free Solar on hand with an electric vehicle and some great information about using solar energy for your house, along with our very own Bull Bag! The race ran by one of our sponsors, Lavender Pond Farm, which has done a beautiful job with their Lavender fields. We also can count on our other key sponsors, Dr. Gary Grippo of Center Podiatry, Ray DesJardin of RLD Heating and Cooling, and Child and Adult Orthodontics. Many thanks to our other sponsors (see their links below). Please support you local businesses who support our race!

Thanks to everyone, we will ensure the turnaround marker is obvious next year, and hope you can join us again!
