Litchfield Hills Road Race

June 9 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The 2024 Litchfield Hills Road Race will be held on Sunday, June 9, 2024, at 1:00 pm on West Street in Litchfield, Connecticut and is celebrating its 47th year. Drawing runners from across the U.S. and beyond, this challenging 7-mile course welcomes participants of all skill levels to experience New England’s scenic beauty.

The route features lively crowds, entertainment by bands, and the notorious Gallows Lane, a steep hill at the beginning of the final mile, rated #8 by Runner’s World Magazine.

Despite the intensity, generous water stations are available, and some spectators might offer adult runners an ice-cold beer.

Hailed by Runners World Magazine, as one of the best little races that you’ve never heard of!


Hydration stations are strategically positioned at the starting line and key mile marks: mile 1, mile 2.5, mile 3.5, mile 5, mile 6, and mile 6.5.


Ample parking options include the municipal lot, St. Anthony’s Church, Litchfield Town Hall, Litchfield Center School, and more. Secure your parking spot by arriving early!


Portable toilets will be conveniently set up on Litchfield Village Green and various locations along the course for participants’ convenience.


Runners can find post-race food in the finish corral, with each participant receiving a food coupon to be redeemed at the Litchfield Lion’s Food booth.
