The Mystic Half Marathon and 10K takes place annually in May. It started in 2015 and is going strong!
The race takes place on a beautiful course that starts and finishes at Olde Mistick Village, heads down Greenville Avenue passing Mystic Seaport, crosses the Mystic Bascule Bridge and Main Street shops of downtown, follows along the scenic Mystic River, passes through Old Mystic and, depending on whether you’re running the 10K or half marathon, either finishes at Mystic Aquarium or continues on through the back roads of Mystic and then to the Aquarium. It’s a truly magnificent course that is mainly flat but includes some small hills.
The Hartford Marathon Foundation and so many volunteers, including charity partner Mystic Rotary Club, come together to make this race a safe, well-organized and enjoyable event for all!
Participants receive Runner Specials at participating businesses throughout town.
