In 1849, the Hartford, Providence, and Fishkill railroad started carrying passengers and freight from Hartford to Willimantic. By the 1880s, this line had become part of the New York and New Haven railroad and continued providing service until the last train went through in the 1960s. After years of neglect and with the tracks long gone, it was reborn as the Hop River Rail Trail. Now you can follow the path of this historic line through gullies and stone cuts, over bridges and past fields and woodlands at the 5th annual Hop River 5K and 10K.
Whether you’re running, volunteering or simply cheering, please bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Andover Food Pantry.
The First Mile welcomes the members of the 169 Society to the 2016 Hop River 5K & 10K. For more information on this group of devoted runners go to www.debticonn.org.
Praise for the Hop River 5K and 10K
“I just did the Hop River 10K in Andover, and it was the best ever 10K I have done. It was beautiful, the weather was perfect and it was nice and shady with a nice breeze blowing. I will talk this up in my running club and hope to be back next year!”
