About This Activity

The 4rd Annual Hamden Hills Half Marathon and 5K is the last Saturday of May (NOT Memorial Day Weekend)
Our Half Marathon course is challenging and picturesque as you run through the back country of Hamden and then runs along the Rail-Trail for the final 2 miles. This is a better course than last year having the fist 2 miles AND the last 2 miles on the Rail-Trail. One of the top 2 toughest Half Marathons in CT. The 5K is BRAND NEW this year and is 100% on the rail-trail. Chip timed, Custom Finisher Medals for the Half Marathon, Short Sleeve Race Shirts and SUBWAY is providing the post-race food. Plus all the frills you are used to getting from the Shoreline Sharks Races.
Gatorade Perform, GU and Poland Spring Water at all Aid Stations (Miles 2.5, 4.5, 6.5, 8.5, 10.5)

PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS NO PARKING IN THE DUNKIN DONUTS, AMITY LIQUORS PARKING LOT. Park in the Rail-Trail lot or across the street in our new lot (follow signs).
