12:00PM EDT - 1:30PM EDT


Westside Road
Norfolk, CT US 06058


This scenic 5-mile road race will start on Westside Road and finish at the Village Green in the center of town.  This Memorial Day tradition, known as the William F Kelley Memorial Road Race, is the sole fundraiser for the Norfolk Volunteer Fire Department college, higher education, undergraduate scholarship program where all proceeds go to Norfolk students.  The race begins on Westside Road and parking will be on Mountain Road at the baseball fields as in the past.  Because we have a timed start, Westside Road will be closed at Sunset Ridge (approximately 10:30 AM) and you should access Mountain Road and the parking lot from Route 272 (Litchfield Road).  Bib & shirt pick up will be at the intersection of Mountain Road and West Side Road on race day morning from 10:00 - 11:45 am OR this year, you will be able to pick up your bib and shirt Sunday night from 5-7 PM in front of the Norfolk Hub (Station Place).  There will be no registration on race day.  Donations are welcome as well, thank you.  

To give our many walkers a better and safer experience on the course, our walking division will start at 11:30 a.m. (you will NOT be timed), so please be sure to be at the start line by 11:30 and we'll see you at the finish line.  

The food truck this year is Frankie's Food Truck (from The Old Well Tavern in Simsbury) will be at the finish line, cash or credit cards accepted, we will have a few music and water stations along the route!
