2020 Virtual Race Information

Date: September 4 – September 7

Events: Virtual Half Marathon, 20K, 5K & Town Fair Tire Kids Fun Run

Due to the current health crisis, the 2020 Faxon Law New Haven Road Race has gone Virtual. While we wish we could be running with you in person this Labor Day, the safety of our athletes, volunteers, spectators, staff, sponsors, and all involved is our number one priority. Rather than cancel the event, the New Haven Road Race Board of Directors has decided to transform the event into a Virtual Race.

2020 race will be home to the USATF/CT 20K State Championships

Already Registered? 

Participants who are already pre-registered for the 2020 New Haven Road Race will receive an email within the next few days with their race registration options. Please email kaitlin@jbsports.com with questions.

NEW! Elm City Challenge & Elm City Ultimate Challenge! 

Looking to push yourself to new levels during the virtual race? Take part in the Elm City Challenge and run any 2 of the long races (5K, Half Marathon and 20K) OR complete the Elm City Ultimate Challenge and run all three long races!

T-Shirts & Race Bibs

All participants will be mailed a t-shirt and a race bib prior to the event (if registered by September 1). All participants who register after September 1 will receive their t-shirts and bibs within 3-5 business days.


Participating in the 2020 Virtual Half Marathon or 20K will continue the streak. The virtual race will have no effect on the streaks, as long as streakers register and participate.
