Highlighting South Glastonbury

King of Pain 10 Miler

Hopewell School, 1068 Chestnut Hill Road
South Glastonbury, CT 06073

About Us:

The King of Pain 10-miler is the toughest GRR training run in town and damn proud of it.

If you're looking to kick off the year with a serious confidence-booster, then here is your chance!

Not only is the event hard-core, but it's old-school. There's no school like the old school. That's what they say. So there will be no high-tech timing system (unless you consider popsicle sticks high-tech), no t-shirts, no bibs, no media coverage and no screaming fans. And definitely no glitzy finishers medals. Instead, we'll give you a strong recommendation for a well-deserved post-run tattoo.

And to top it all off, it'll be freakishly cold. So dress in layers and make sure that one of those layers is your bad-a$$ self.

Training Run starts at 9am at Hopewell school - 1068 Chestnut Hill Rd, South Glastonbury, CT 06073

Relay teams will consist of 3 slightly less painful segments: two 3 mile legs and one 4 mile leg.

Relay teams

You can team up with three running buddies for a relay race. Relays teams have four members in total. The three exchange points will be:

Mile 2.75 – corner of Clark Hill Rd and Matson Hill Rd
Mile 4.91 – corner of Hi Gate Farms Rd and Matson Hill Rd
Mile 7.44 – corner of Shipman and Ledgewood.

Every relay team will provide a car and drive to each exchange point. After each exchange, the car will drive to the next exchange.
