The King of Pain 10-Miler

Presented by The Glastonbury River Runners Club

In 2004, a legend was born. The King of Pain is the toughest road race in the history of Glastonbury and, as anyone who has run it knows, it lives up to its name. The course offers breathtaking South Glastonbury orchard scenery, along with hill, after hill, after hill. As a bonus, we scheduled the race smack-dab in the middle of a frigid New England winter. No extra charge. And you’ll be pretty sore after you finish, but you’ll walk away with bragging rights that will last all year long.

Register quick. The field is strictly limited to 150, and all of the clinical masochists in the state want in. Registration opens January 1st, but only Glastonbury River Runner members may register between 1/1 and 1/8, then registration will open to the general public. Shirt sizes guaranteed before 1/26/18. Course will be open to traffic, so please use caution.

Race will benefit Achilles CT and Sunshine Kids.
