The annual Granby Road Race is one of Connecticut’s oldest historic road events. The 10K race takes place on a rolling scenic route, partly road and partly through the McLean Game Refuge. The 5K runs partly on road, and partly through Salmon Brook Park.
Both races start just south of the Granby Middle School on Route 10. The 5K continues south on Route 10 and enters Salmon Brook Park, where the course makes a loop before returning to Route 10 and heading north back to Granby Middle School.
The 10K continues south on the west side of Route 10 to Canton Road, where runners turn right onto Canton Road. Runners enter the McLean Game Refuge from Canton Road and exit the refuge back onto the west side of Route 10. Runners continue north on the west side of Route 10 and turn left into the semi-circle driveway in front of the high school to the finish line.
The race benefits the YMCA’s Annual Campaign, which allows people to enjoy the YMCA and its programs regardless of their ability to pay.
