CANTON, April 27 – There are still opening for runners to register for the fourth annual Burlington to Collinsville Classic 10K road race on Sunday, May 5, at 8:30 a.m. Last year, the race sold out for the third consecutive year with 875 registrants.
The 6.2 mile race, which is hosted by the Hartford Marathon Foundation, began at the Lake Garda School in Burlington and joined the Farmington Valley River trail in Farmington, raced along the Farmington River in Burlington and concluded in Collinsville.
At the conclusion of the race, participants will be treated to some delicious chili and cornbread made fresh from Lisa’s Crown & Hammer, and a cup of Giv Coffee’s nitro cold brew coffee.
Donations of nonperishable food will be collected on race day through the HMF Can drive to benefit the Canton Food Bank, which helps to supplement the food needs of Canton residents.
Harwington’s Tyler Lyons and Unionville’s Rebecca Stephenson won the race a year ago.
The race is the first of a new three-race series called the Connecticut Triple Challenge that includes the UConn Health Half Marathon on June 2 and the Eversource Harford Marathon on October 12.
