Sharon Classic 35th Annual Road Race

The Sharon Classic 35th Annual Road Race, will be held Saturday, September 26, 2020 on the Sharon Town Green, Sharon, CT  06069. The event includes three Kids Fun Runs and a 5 Mile Run/Walk.  The Race was moved from its original May 2nd date because of the Covid-19.

The Sharon Classic Road Race, a 35-year tradition in Sharon, CT combines small-town charm with big race amenities. What began as a small but meaningful fundraiser for the Sharon Day Care Center has evolved into a significant early spring race in the Northwest Corner. It is also a very successful fundraiser.

The Main Event, and 5-Mile Race begins at 10:15 a.m. with Registration opening at 8:30 a.m.  Kids Events begin at 9:30 with the Fun Run, which is organized into 2 age groups. Our popular Not-Quite-A-Mile Kids race begins at 9:45 and is for children through age 12.

The race course is a beautiful route through town and rural sections of Sharon. The “lollipop” route has gently rolling hills with a good climb in the 4th mile. We provide water stations and timers along the course. One of the most enjoyable courses to run in the Northwest Corner, the Sharon Classic is a great way to start the racing season and is an excellent warm-up for the larger races in the area.

Course records: Men’s – 24:38 (2015); Women’s – 28:28 (2013)

In addition to these events, we have a Silent Auction, Bounce House, Massages, Food Concessions, local exhibits from community organizations, music and more. Using a GPS? Please use Sharon Town Hall, located at 63 Main Street – Sharon, CT as a coordinate.

 

After the race- awards, activities, food and beverage vendors and much more.
