The Strides for Scholars 5K Trail/Road Race and 2 Mile Walk takes place in Bigelow Hollow State Park, Union CT. (Map and directions.)
Both events start simultaneously at the staging area and head south on Bigelow Brook Road. The 5K loops around at the guards’ booth near the park entrance and heads north on Bigelow Brook Rd. Runners then take a right onto Park Road near the pumphouse and continue on to turn around near Breakneck Pond. From here they return to the staging area and the finish line.
