The Pamby Ridgefield Half Marathon and 7-Miler is a beautiful race featuring classic fall New England scenery. The race is beginner-friendly, and contains some of prettiest roads in Fairfield County! The race starts on East Ridge Road, just above the The Boys and Girls Club of Ridgefield, with a few gradual climbs to keep you honest. It then settles into a nice rolling course that winds through southern Ridgefield for two loops that showcase some of the flattest miles in the town. With a fast downhill into downtown Ridgefield and back to the Boys and Girls Club, you're sure to finish strong and smiling! 




  • Are strollers and dogs allowed on the race? NO strollers or dogs for safety reasons.
  • Can I wear headphones? We would prefer that you not wear headphones. The roads are not closed to traffic and you need to be able to hear your surroundings and police/course marshal instructions. Runners wearing headphones will not be eligible for awards.
  • I'm doing the Early Start option for the Half Marathon. Am I eligible for awards? No. If you think you might earn an award, you must use the 7:45/7:50 main start.
  • I can't run. Can I just give someone else my bib? NO!  For safety reasons, we need to know exactly who is on the course. If a runner needs medical attention we use the info from the race bib to make emergency contacts. Plus, wearing another's bib can interfere with the age group and even overall race results. Please do not "give" your bib to others.
  • If I'm signed up for the Half Marathon, can I decide to run the 7-Miler on race day? And vice-versa? Well, we're not going to stop you, but we will have timing mats on the course and we'll see how many laps you did. The 13.1 and the 7-Miler also have different color race bibs. If there is a discrepancy between what you signed up for and what you ran, you will receive a DQ in the results. (Also, if you run the 13.1 when you were signed up for and paid for the 7-Miler, that's just not cool.)
  • My friend/spouse/child is not registered. Can he/she just run with me? NO! This is called "banditing" and is essentially using race resources without paying for them. It's also a safety issue, and even if that person doesn't take the medal or use the potties, they are still using resources they haven't paid for. We have capacity limits set for the race as per Ridgefield Police Dept, so it's also like crashing a wedding or party you didn't RSVP for. Please don't bandit races, it's just being a jerk.
  • I can't make it to Package Pick Up, can a friend pick up for me?  YES.
  • Does the race happen rain or shine?  You bet!  Unless there is a natural disaster that prevents a safe race course, there will be a race!
  • I can't race, can I get a refund? Sorry, no refunds or transfers for any reason; races are planned months in advance. We pay vendors and have to buy runner gifts quite early in the planning process (it's a bit like a wedding!). You can defer your entry to the 2021 race for a $5 fee. Log into your account and go to "participant management" to make a deferral. Last day to defer is 10/10/20.
