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 200, and all of the clinical masochists in the state want in. Registration opens December 15th! Shirt sizes guaranteed before 1/10/20. Course will be open to traffic, so please use caution.

Race will benefit Achilles CT and Sunshine Kids.

Where: Hopewell School, 1068 Chestnut Hill St., South Glastonbury, Connecticut.

Parking: EXTREMELY limited. Absolutely NO PARKING at the fire station across the street. Please carpool if possible. Additional parking at the daycare in the plaza on New London Tpke.

When: Sunday, February 2, 2020. 9AM sharp. Snow Date will be Sunday, February 9, 2020

Cost: $45 for individuals through 1/10/20, and $50 thereafter.  Cost is $60 for a 3-person relay team.

All relay runners may purchase a Tech Shirt for $10, based on availability.  

Awards: The top male & female finishers will be crowned the 2020 King & Queen of Pain with great pomp and circumstance. Age group recognition for first place male and female in 10 year age groups will be presented following the race.
