2021 Annual Killingworth Road Race – CANCELLED
Shawn and I have decided to cancel this years race due to the difficulty of the economy for our sponsors and the uncertainty surrounding group events. We wish it wasn’t necessary but are doing so as an extra precaution. Please support your local businesses on this site that have supported us in the past. Also in lieu of a race this year, consider contributing to the Church Preservation fund celebrating 200 years since the dedication of the church in 1820. Let’s ring that bell again!

Thank you all, and please stay safe!

What a beautiful day Gil Simmons from NewsChannel8 ordered up for us today! Low 70’s sunny and dry…..opposite end of the spectrum from last year’s washout (thanks to those of you pushed through that…today was good payback!). Thanks Gil for joining us and for delivering once again and running the race.
We did the out and back route this year due to DOT work on Rte 80, got lots of positive feedback, we’ll see what we do next year. We had 154 registered runners which is a great turnout for our race. Thank you to all who participated.
The overall winner was Conor McCabe of nearby Higganum with an outstanding time of 22:10! Maureen Terwilliger of Guilford took the honors for the females at an outstanding time of 26:35. Christian Uzwiak was the top Killingworth finisher with a time of 23:18….way to represent Christian! We of course had many blueberry pie winners from the age of 11 to the age of 76….a testament to broad participation from the entire community.
For those of you that have pictures to share, feel free to let me know and I will gets links up.
As you all know, we could not ring the bell this year due to structural challenges at the church that need to be remedied. If you care to, please click on the link to our preservation 2020 page and make a donation to help support the renovation of this beautiful building…we have raised over $100K towards our $350K goal to bring the church back to it’s full beauty. Many thanks! https://www.gofundme.com/f/preservation-2020
Thanks to everyone who attended, it was a great day and we hope to see you all again next year!
