Event Background

The Golden Lights Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, is proud to welcome runners back to the 2nd Annual Golden Lights Half-Marathon & Fun Run this fall on Sunday, September 17th, 2023! The half-marathon will begin at 8:00am and the Fun Run starting shortly after at 8:45. The mission of Golden Lights Foundation is to fund pediatric cancer research using a targeted, project and doctor-centric approach. 100% of your registration, not including signup fees, supports the foundation's mission.

Half-Marathon Information

As a certified USATF course, the Golden Lights Half-Marathon is a perfect training or qualifying course which starts and finishes in the picturesque Greenwich Point (Tod's Point) Park in Greenwich, CT. The first few miles are unlike any other half-marathon, bringing runners to the edge of the Long Island Sound and Greenwich's beautiful harbors. The race continues through the quaint neighborhoods of Old Greenwich and Riverside, until concluding back in the park along the water's edge.
