Happy May Day!
It was a battle between two young guns that went back and forth over the last 600 meters. In the end, one second separated the two. Results for the 21st Annual Edmund Ganem Memorial 5K Road Race from Terryville are posted!
Cool temperatures in the upper 40's. The rain has stopped. The wind is calm and the sun is shining. It's a great morning for a race! The 6th Annual Hoof it for Haiti 5K in Southbury is a fantastic event for a great cause.
Clear blue skies, cool, dry temperatures in the mid 40's with an occasional breeze. Ideal racing conditions for the We Care 5K in Brookfield.
The rain stopped. The clouds looked threatening and the wind made for good kite flying. The runners were not deterred from the 1st Annual Run for the Farm 5K in Sherman.
Sunshine, dry, cool temperatures, great races!
Spring is here! Despite several inches of heavy wet snow, the races took place, and the runners ran. In Waterbury , it was the premier of the Chris Corbett 5K with nearly 600 finishers. In Westfield, it was the Oleksak Lumber Westfield 5K, 10K, and Half-Marathon. Both event drew smaller crowds due to the inclement weather; however, the roads were clear and the racers had some pretty decent times, despite cooler temperatures and very strong winds. The port-a-let at mile two blew over!
The Westfield Half-Marathon, 5K, 10K starts at 11:00 AM tomorrow, April 3, 2016. From Middletown, CT, take i91 North to Westfield, MA. Race day registration closes at 10:30 AM. Come early!
Get your training in now, because the month of April is filled with some great races! Check out the Race Application page.
Leap Year is tomorrow!
James McKidy and David Hunt ran together for the firs two miles. Over the third mile, Hunt began to tighten up as he realized that 5:26 and 5:26 is just too fast for his current level of training. McKirdy is six weeks into his training and he continued to press. There was a steady wind from every direction around Lake Waramaug but the sun was shining and the temperature made it feel like an early April run in spring-time. Samantha Glass is not running for a college team and has forgone NCAA elligibility. She was fourth overall, a couple minutes behind 53-year old, Jim Zoldy!
Results for the 32nd Annual Polar Bear 7.8-Mile Run are posted. Thanks to Wallie Jahn and his tireless efforts to establish this deep winter race. And thank you to Dave Dunleavy for picking up the mantle. See you next year for the 33rd Annual Polar Bear Run!
The cell reception at the Polar Bear Run is poor. I will attempt to post results to this website while the race is in progress. Be sure to hit refresh each time you check in to see the most current results. These are the pre-registrations! The weather looks like it's going to be fantastic to run steady, competitive splits, for 7.6-miles!
Check out the Race Application Page. Don't forget to hit refresh...
Polar Bear Run 7.6-Miles around Lake Waramaug is this Sunday. The race starts at 11:00 AM. Get there early. Parking is limited and it's a hike from the registration area to the start line. This is a great race with a fast course. In 2015 this was the USATF/Connecticut Cup Championship! See you there!
Mario Longo has been a quality racer for the past decade. As he made the turn into the final 200 meter stretch, he started to follow the pace vehicle of the course and almost lost the lead. It just goes to show that mistakes can happen to the best of runners. A good rule of thumb for the beginner racers is to always practice the finish. Incorporate the finsh as part up your prerace warmup. Be sure about that final mile and your kick to the finish will be all the more stronger. Longo set a new course record!
The women's race was just as dramatic as the men's. Sarah Schecter was able to hold off a hard charging Julianna Carney. Schecter set a new course record! Many thank to the Dabury Westerners. There was a record turnout for the 4th Annual Big Chili 5K in Danbury, CT. A great rae with some pretty good chili...Final Results are posted!
This is a test set-up page for race-day results. Results will be posted shortly after the top 10 finishers, 25, 50, 100, 150, 200.... You will be able to look up your results from your smart phone while the race is still active by clicking the "Most Recent" link below.

DANBURY, CT (January 14): The Danbury Westerners are pleased to announce that the 4th Annual Danbury Westerners Big Chili 5K is set for Sunday, February 21 at 10:00AM at the Danbury Sports Dome.
The race is part of the Chili Winter Warm Up which is a family festival and chili cook-off also held at the Danbury Sports Dome on Sunday, April 3 at 1:00PM. The course is fast and flat, leaving from the Danbury Sports Dome, rolling into Bethel and back to the Dome.
Runners will be treated with refreshments in the Dome following the race including a hot bowl of chili. Age group awards will be presented in seven different categories and t-shirts will be awarded to the first 150 registrants.

Paul Schaffer, President of the Danbury Westerners and a participant in each of the prior three Big Chili 5k road races said, “This is a great event where families can enjoy a nice run on a relatively flat course, and then warm up inside the Sports Dome with some chili. We are grateful for all of the runners who participate each year, and for our sponsors who help us with this event.”
Major sponsors include Fairfield County Bank, Berkshire Broadcasting, Durkins Awnings and New Balance of Bethel. Presenting sponsors are the Danbury Westerners and the Danbury Sports Dome.

About Danbury Westerners
The rain did not dampen the spirits. So far, everyone has kept their New Year's resolution. Bruce Christenson and Alyssa Cole have set the standards. This is a brand new course that is a certified 4-Miler. It has some hills and some very pretty country roads. Thank you to the Town of Morris, the White memorial Foundation, and many thanks to the 169'ers. Results for the Premier of the Morris Marsh Point 4-Miler are posted!
The race in Morris is on!

Just five more days until the Morris Marsh Point 4-Miler. The extended weather forecast looks favorable and the course conditions are good. The course has been measured and certified by the United States Track and Field for an exact distance of 4-Miles. Take a look at the course map! I will post the preregistration list tomorrow. The turnout is fantastic and we will be timing with the chip. Stay tuned...
Happy New Year!
The Brookfield Lions Club puts on a great series of races throughout the year. This is the 29th year for the Annual New Year's Day Brookfield Lions Run for Sight 4-Miler. Once again, the defending champion was successfully in the men's race and the women's race. William Sanders took 30 seconds off from his time in 2015. He's getting closer to a very formidable course record set by Houssine Siba in 1994. There aren't that many long term course records out there. Sara Belles was 3 seconds slower this year. Belles did finish 7th overall in 2016 and 12th overall in 2015. That's a great way to start the New Year! Results are posted.
A great way to run in the new year! The 8th Annual Gordon Bates "First Race" in Westfield, Massachusetts. Michael Shea and Lisa Anderson took the 5K. Mark Robasco was all alone in just over 6 minutes a mile. Vanessa Diana was nearly 4 minutes ahead as she cruised to the New Year. Results are posted!
There was a record turnout at the 17th Annual Norfolk Pub 10-Mile Road Race.
Despite temperatures returning to normal, the crowds came out to Norfolk to test their fitness against 10-Miles of hills, country roads, and bone chilling wind. This was a fairly mild Norfolk, as weather goes, and the course was in great condition. The Brookfield Track Team got a great distance workout and the women race was fantastic. There were several times for the women that earned the "Top Fifteen" list of all-time.
Melissa Stellato defended her title and took over two minutes off from her time in 2014. Her time today puts her in the top 5 women's time for the Norfolk Pub 10-Mile. Claudia Camargo has the first 4...Annemarie Tuxbury moved into the 11th spot for all-time while Sara Belles is 16th of all-time. Outstanding! There were some great times in the older divisions with 60-year old, Steve Scott running 1:12:39 and 53-Year old, Jim Zoldy running 1:04:38. Jim has had several excellent races at Norfolk over the years. It was great to see everyone. Thank you to all the runners, the spectators, volunteers, and the Town of Norfolk. Results are posted!
Great day for the Norfolk Pub 10-Miler. Small dusting of snow. Some wind. Temperature around 28 degrees. Some sun. Race-day registration opens at 9:00 AM. Race starts at 11:00 AM. Get your run on!
It looks like the weather conditions will be good for Norfolk. Mostly sunny, dry (possible snow flurry), calm (occasional breeze), and temperatures from the teens to the mid 30's.
The pre registrations for Norfolk are in; take a look at the list! Parking/Registration/Start/Finish is at the Town Hall.
Just a few hours left to pre register on-line for the Norfolk Pub 10-Mile Road Race. On-line registration closes at 1:00 AM on Friday. I will be posting the pre registration list on this web site Friday. There will be race-day registration from 9:00 AM to 10:45 AM. The early start for runners planning on running 1:50:00 or slower is at 10:30 AM.
It is interesting to see the formidable Dave Dunham's name move to the bottom of the list and wonder if Jeff Niedeck's Master record will hold for another year. There is Open, Master and Grand Master prize money. Will a woman ever break 60 minutes at Norfolk? Claudia Camargo (Nero) dominated from 2004 to 2007 and Shannon McHale's masters record seems pretty safe...

A great crowd turned out for the 33rd Annual Jingle Bell Run 5K in Litchfield, CT. Brendan LeClair went thru 1-Mile in 5:05 and thru the 2-Mile in 10:43. It was 18-year old LeClair for the win but 14-year-old, Josh Mangini was hot on his sleigh. For the women, it was Brittany Heninger with a new course record. Heninger went thru the 1-Mile in 5:48 and the 2-Mile in 11:44. Conor Courtney was the first Litchfield male and Sherri Odell, the first Litchfield female. They both took home a christmas tree. The overall winners took home a gallon of local maple syrup. Many thanks to the runners, the sponsors, the organizers, and the retired spectators from the local retirement home that lined the finish stretch with bells and whistels! Results are posted.
