2020 Faxon Law New Haven Road Race Goes Virtual

Host of the 2020 USATF/CT 20K State Championships

In the wake of COVID-19 pandemic, the 43rd Annual Faxon Law New Haven Road Race has become a virtual event during Labor Day Weekend (September 4th – 7th). Participants can register for the virtual half marathon, 20K, 5K, or Kids Fun Run, and participate at the time and place of their choosing.

The City of New Haven and the New Haven Road Race Board of Directors jointly decided the race cannot happen as it traditionally does on the New Haven Green. Michael Dolan, Race President, states “the decision to make the event virtual was not an easy one. We explored every option and carefully thought through new protocols, but in the end, we could not guarantee a safe event”.

Participants will be mailed bibs and their custom road race shirts prior to the virtual event. Results will be self-reported and compiled into a race results database. Race organizers look forward to participants sharing their experiences on social media.
