REGISTRATION FOR THE 2021 5/2/21 DATE WILL OPEN ON 1/1/21 AT NOON. WITH DEFERRALS FROM THE ORIGINAL 2020 RACE. REGISTRATIONS AVAILABLE ARE VERY LIMITED.
NOTE: WITH THE CURRENT PANDEMIC, IF THE 5/2/21 DATE DOESN'T PROVE POSSIBLE, ALL REGISTRANTS WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE DEFERRED TO OUT CONTINGENCY DATE OF 10/10/20. THANKS FOR UNDERSTANDING.
The races begin and end at stunning New Pond Farm Education Center in West Redding, Connecticut with a starting time of 8:00am for the half and 8:35am for the 7 miler. All races are on bucolic country roads that have runners passing a horse farm, a waterfall, a railroad bridge, wetlands, streams, lakes, an historic schoolhouse circa 1789, while finishing in beautiful New Pond Farm Education Center. The course can be categorized as challenging and rolling (with plenty of short hills but none that would be classified as long). There are also plenty of downhills and areas of flat running, so runners should have no problem settling into a comfortable pace.
The Piglet Prance (Kids' Fun Run) of 3/4 of a mile is entirely on New Pond Farm Education Center grounds and will occur before the start of the other two races (at 7:30 am).
Runners of every race will receive a gorgeous, in-house designed, 4" finishers medal, an in-house designed performance shirt and numerous other special surprise race goodies. It is our goal to have the Redding Road Race "Run for the Cows" be the friendliest and best supported race of its kind in this area, or any area, for that matter, while benefitting New Pond Farm Education Center and its wonderful programs.
