The races begin and end at stunning Hoyt Campground 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 at the campground. 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 Flying Frog Frenzy (Kids' Fun Run) of 3/4 of a mile is entirely on Hoyt Campground 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, finishers medal, an in-house designed performance shirt and numerous other special surprise race goodies. It is our goal to have The Mark Twain Redding Road Race be the friendliest and best supported race of its kind in this area, or any area, for that matter, while benefitting numerous Redding, CT charities. The majority of proceeds go to supporting BSA Troop 15 [reddingtroop15.org] (boys) and BSA Troop 306 (girls) of Redding.
