The 4th Annual Rail Trail 10K Race is being held at 8am. Our 10K course is 100% on the Rail Trail with no cars and no street crossings. Flat and picturesque out-n-back running through Fall's natural beauty. The Start and Finish is the same as our Hamden Hills Half Marathon & Flat 5K which is the Sherman Avenue Rail Trail lot in Hamden across from the Quinnipiac University York Hill Campus.
