New for 2015 – Virtual Race!

For the past 23 years the Groton Road Races have been celebrating spring in New England. This year, to allow far flung supporters and alumni of the event who are not able to physically be in Groton on race day, the race committee has created a Virtual Race category.

This means that anyone, anywhere can register for either the 5K or 10K virtually. You will be sent a bib number and the highly coveted ‘wearable art’ race t-shirt. Virtual participants simply run their own version of the race where they are and log their finish times.

REGISTER HERE for the virtual race.

Registration is OPEN for 2015!

Come join us for the 24th Annual Groton Road Race!

As in previous years, the Groton Road Race will feature four distinct races:

  • Tots’ Trot – A great way to introduce children aged 0-6 to running.
  • 2K Fun Run – Perfect for young, aspiring athletes to strut their stuff and for parents and grandparents to run alongside their youngsters.
  • 5K – A beautiful course that winds through town.
  • 10K – An idyllic route set on rolling hills through scenic Groton.

For the easiest registration, sign up securely online with NO EXTRA FEES! Alternatively, you can print and mail in a paper form.

See you in April!
