Boston Blowout Cancelled

In light of the CDC's recommendation that no public gatherings of more than 50 people be held for the next 8 weeks in an effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we must regrettably cancel this year's Boston Blowout.

We may try to hold a similar event this summer, in a similar time frame relative to the rescheduled Boston Marathon, but things are far too unsettled to make any definite plans at this time. We will be issuing refunds of everyone's entry fee minus the processing fee shortly. Please indicate your request for a refund by the scheduled race date in order to help us plan accordingly. RunSignUp requires us to maintain a percentage of the entry fees in a reserve "escrow" fund until 30 days past the event date, so refunds may not be issued until then.

This is a trying time for runners and race organizers alike, as well as society in general, and we appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.

Here Are Your Options:

We're as disappointed as you that the Blowout can't go on this year. Please indicate that you want a refund - we will issue refunds minus the processing fee within 30 days of the race date.

Description

NOTE- THIS EVENT IS SUNDAY MARCH 29. WE APOLOGIZE IF EARLY INFO STATED THE 22nd.

THE ONLY EVENT OF ITS KIND IN CT - TAKE YOUR PICK OF DISTANCE (you can even change it while you’re in it!) How can we offer that? We designed a great 10K course that you can run once, twice or three times. With chip timing you’ll get accurate times for the 10K split, the 20k split and YOUR finish distance. With our safe, flat loop (that includes a 7/10 mi smooth trail section) you’ll be able to maintain a consistent pace of your choice.  We offer a low key event to keep costs down, but still have a quality run and enjoy the experience. 

We always hear “There are no 10Ks in CT anymore!” So here’s one to try. Well marked, quiet roads, early morning start with a warm building to come back to. If you feel great and decide to extend your run for another loop we can accommodate that! 

It is true there aren’t many 20Ks in CT- so here’s an opportunity to try the 12.4mile distance. It’s a great training run for a future half marathon, marathon or just because...and a great chance to run a PR if you’re ready. 

If you're prepping for Boston (or any other spring marathon) and want to do a long trying run with some company and comfort, our 30K will fit your plans. Our courses are on the flattest roads in the South Pine Creek area of Fairfield- perfect for a great pacing run. It also includes a groomed trail portion that will help your legs recover thru a peaceful setting. Our course is designed to take advantage of a new groomed trail section and decrease water table distances. The course is designed so that you will have water available for you three times on each 10k loop.

 The finish line for the 30K will remain open until 3:06:24 (10 min. pace). Those planning to run slower must start early. The course is well marked with signage, cones and flour arrows on the streets. Course maps will be available and the link is right here https://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6810329 

 ChronoTrack timing is used for all events with 10k splits available for the 20K and 30K distances.  

Post-run snacks, fluids, and swag will be waiting for you at our Scandinavian Club venue.

Course Map

The course is a certified 10 km loop. Runners may choose to do one, two or three loops of the course to cover the appropriate distance. There are two water stops on the course, one of which is passed twice, meaning you should pass an aid station approximately every two miles or so.

The course is a combination of roads and groomed trails, and is well marked, but if you are unsure of your directional abilities, or are starting early, you may want to print a copy of this map to carry with you.
