THE BLOWOUT IS BACK IN LORDSHIP!
WITH A FULL BRUNCH OFFER AT NIKKI’S RESTAURANT
NOTE- YOU DID IT! We are over 50 people for the races and quite a few for the brunch. We’ve got lots more room so tell your friends, spread the word, post it on social media. We are a go for this unique, five mile loop.
Join our partner- Nikki's Beach House Grill- and enjoy a huge, full menu brunch from 11:30am-2pm. You’ll build up a good appetite after your run!
Plan your pace & distance to finish on schedule for the start of brunch at 11:30am.
We’ve been offered an unbelievable brunch price - just $25! (normally $30)
Please scroll to the bottom of this page to see the link to Nikki’s for the menu. Last year the buffet was HUGE!
NOTE- OUR LIMIT OF RESERVED BRUNCHES HAS BEEN SET AT 25 so don’t delay!
We are back to the wonderfully scenic section of Stratford, along the water. It’s a pretty darn quiet neighborhood and really flat. We start and finish in the lot at Nikki’s Restaurant. (The Par 3 golf lot at Short Beach)
With half marathons & marathons back in gear we think this is a great place to do a long run on your own or with some friends.
Run/walk 5, 10, or 15 miles on our 5 mile loop course. There will be at least one or two water tables on the course and plenty at the start/finish.
THE ONLY EVENT OF ITS KIND IN CT - TAKE YOUR PICK OF DISTANCE AND START TIME from 8:15 - 10am
The finish line will remain open until 11:15am (That's around a 12+ min. pace if you start the 15 miler at 8:15am).
If you plan to run a bit slower please email our Director to start earlier. You must connect with our timer before you start!
The course is well marked with signage, cones and flour arrows on the streets. Course maps will be available and the link will be here soon.
(you can even change to a shorter distance while you’re in it!)
We have designed a great 5 mile loop course that you can run once, twice or three times. With our safe, flat loop you’ll be able to maintain a consistent pace of your choice. We offer you a low-key event to keep costs down, but still have a quality run and enjoy the experience.
We always hear “There are no 5 milers in CT anymore!”Now there is one to try.
It will be well marked on quiet roads. There is a warm restaurant to come back to (after 11:30am) if you decide to 'brunch' with us or even just enjoy a post run beverage of your choice.
If you feel great & decide to extend your run for another loop- go for it!
It is true there aren’t many 10 milers either. And certainly no other 15 milers! Here’s an opportunity to try the distance without any pressure. It’s a great training run for a future half marathon, marathon, or just because. Here’s a chance to run a PR if you’re ready.
If you can't stay for brunch at least plan to stop in NIKKI'S for some well needed hydration! IT'S APRIL MADNESS!
Volunteers are always welcome - if you have friends or family that could help us with food, fluids, water tables, course marshal, etc. PLEASE EMAIL Marty- firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again! Marty Schaivone - Race Director Person

Bring your own liquids for pre- and post-race. We will set out tables across from the start/finish line where you may place personal bottles for use during the race. We will also have at least one water table on the course.
We will utilize a "rolling start" so you can begin after the official 8:15 am start if needed. In this way you can time your run to finish and enjoy brunch from 11:30am- on. Chip timing will begin when you cross the mat.
