    I’m surprised I haven’t run this race before in all honesty. It’s always on Memorial Day (as I’m sure you assumed) and it starts and ends in the heart of downtown Greenwich.

    The race is sponsored by Threads and Treads and runners can either pick up their bib and t-shirt in advance at the store or morning of on Greenwich Ave at the senior center.

    Parking is easy as the start and finish are basically in the center of town so there are a few options all of which are easy.

    The course itself is nice, winding through downtown Greenwich, through some residential areas, and through Bruce Park. The first have of the course is relatively flat, but the second boasts some hills that don’t seem to end, some of which are walk worthy. Most of the course is shaded and there were about 2 water stops on the course, one of which you pass twice.

    There is no medal (as there usually isn’t for a 5 mile race) and the shirt is a cotton shirt, but it wasn’t white! The finish area had Propel electrolyte water, regular water, bagels, and a nice spread of fruit including cut watermelon. There are no race photos.

    The race is relatively small, but even coming in around an hour I was never running alone and there were still about 20 people behind me. Race times from past year seem to cap out around an hour and 15 minutes.
