But before we get there, our next event is the Hangover Classic 5 miler.  This old-school race is in its 35th running and it is the best way to kick off the New Year.  On January 1, run around Bristol Harbor, historic Coggeshall Farm and through stunning Colt State Park.  The race is sure to invigorate your sense of purpose and self-accomplishment on the first day of the next decade!


This year the race will be especially “old-school” as the folks at DEM in Colt State Park have asked us to use the trails instead of the roadways, which means part of the course will be untreated, depending on the weather.  Please be aware of this change and plan accordingly.  More information is available on our website.

After the race, check out our new awesome local brewery partner, Twelve Guns Brewery Not only are they providing our awesome trophies, but they will be giving away a free 5 oz beer to all our participants at the post-race party – ;).  Check them out at noon on race day – free beer coupon valid on January 1st only.

Finally – we are constantly striving to get better and learn from you, our participants – what we have done right and where we can improve.  Please take our quick Year-End Survey to help us as we plan our 2020 events.

A reminder – ALL of our race entries increase on 12/31.  Sign up soon and save some $$$$!

As always, thank you for joining us and we hope to see you on the starting line soon.
