Description

A series of ten progressively longer races, held at various locations throughout the Town of Westport.

We're happy to announce the return to in-person racing for the 59th annual Roadrunners Summer Series! In keeping with state COVID19 guidelines for road races, things will look a little different than they have in the past. To keep runners and volunteers safe, we will be instituting the follow protocols:

  1. There will be no in-person race day registration on paper forms. Online registration will remain open until the start time. Runners should register before arriving at the race site, or on their phones when they get there, then check in with other pre-registered runners.
  2. Laddie's tongue depressors have been retired and sent to the Distance Running Hall of Fame! To eliminate large groups of runners waiting in close proximity to turn in their sticks, we will utilize ChronoTrack chip timing technology. This will have the added benefit of almost instant results. If you sign up for text alerts, your finish time and place will be waiting for you on your phone when you get back to your car. Thanks to Pequot Runners for providing timing bibs and chips!
  3. To facilitate this, all runners must check in before the race and be assigned a race bib, which must be worn on the front of your shirt or shorts during the race. If you have a bib from a previous Series race you may re-use that, but you still need to check in and tell the volunteer your number.
  4. We will utilize a staggered or rolling start over a timing mat for the first five races. This will give all runners a net or "chip" time based on when they cross the start.
  5. There will be no post-race awards ceremony. We will try to hand out prize T-shirts to the first three male and female runners soon after they finish.
  6. There will be no water stops on the course for the shorter (first five) races. Runners are asked to be self sufficient by carrying their own hydration items. For the longer races there will be touchless self-serve water containers as a refilling source.
Note that these protocols may change if state guidelines for road races are modified.

For those unable or unwilling to participate in an in-person race, we will once again offer a Virtual option. You will be able to run the course, or the equivalent distance, any time beginning the Monday before the scheduled date, and submit your time online, where it will be compiled with the results of other Virtual competitors. If you download the RaceJoy app and run with your phone, you'll get mile splits and directional cues (if you are running the actual course), and your results should post automatically. The RaceJoy app will also track your performance if you run anywhere else. These results will be separate from those who physically run the in-person race.

PLEASE ENTER YOUR RESULT BY 8 PM ON RACE DAY!

ONCE AGAIN - PHOTOS! RunSignUp has added the ability for runners to upload photos to this site. So, after you complete your race, whether in-person or Virtual, post a photo or two of your run - at the start, finish or in between. The more we get, the better! Just click on the Photo tab on the left side of the screen and post away!

Due to the pricing structure for online registration, which includes a $2.50 processing fee for each transaction, it will be MUCH cheaper to register for the full 10-race Series if you are doing more than three races. We strongly recommend you take advantage of the Series discount. It will also eliminate the need to register for each race separately online.
