Comstock Bridge Road
Colchester, CT US 06415

This earth-friendly road race features a spectacularly scenic course in rural Eastern Connecticut that begins and ends at the Comstock covered bridge and follows the Salmon River through State Forest and along an old railroad bed. The race features varied terrain of pavement, dirt road and improved trail, a fast downhill finish, two water stops, an awards ceremony, and an amazing post-race barbecue.

The guided 2.5 mile ramble is a lovely walk along the banks of the Salmon River on trails through the State Forest and includes entry to the post-race barbecue.  It is perfect for those not quite up to the task of a run but who may be accompanying a friend or family member running the race and will give you something to do while you wait for your loved one to cross the finish.
