The purpose of the CT Veterans Day Race is to organize, promote, and manage a run/walk/ruck event that honors all CT veterans who served; while raising funds and educating the communities who support veteran service organizations who directly service our brave military men and women.

Choose the scenic 4-Mile Course, 
or the 3-mile walk or ruck course  
-- both live or virtual opt​ions

Our race will begin and end at Patriots Park in quiet Coventry, Connecticut. The race passes the Memorial Green, which is home to the Connecticut Vietnam Memorial and the Captain Nathan Hale Monument.  Included is an easy 3-mile walker course or 3-mile Rucksack (with non-perishable items or toiletry items) for those non-runners who want to support our veterans.


The event kicks off at 9:45 a.m. with a patriotic opening ceremony. 

Race start is 10:00 a.m. Award ceremony is 11:00 a.m.


Join us as we salute our Connecticut veterans!

Veteran Support Groups

Veteran Organizations are invited to set up informational tables at Patriots Park on Race Day to promote their services directly to the veteran community.  


The civilian community gains a first-hand experience of the many services provided to our veterans and often continue their support for these organizations beyond Race Day.  


Enjoy the 4-mile certified course as you prepare for race day --  either live or virtual.

The 3-mile walker or ruck sack course has a turn-around at Judd Road (1st left on map above)
