Litchfield's Half Marathon

11/12/2016

Litchfield, CT

The H ½ was created to honor our military, to thank them and let them know that their sacrifices are not unnoticed or taken for granted. This course is extremely tough – to represent the efforts that our military make for us every day and often far away from their loved ones. This race does not offer prize money. This is a bare bones race for those with the determination, grit and wherewithal to get it done; to run those 13.1 miles for your own satisfaction and to keep in the public eye the extreme nature of what it means to serve our Country. No frills, just sweat. You'll dig deep for this course. All proceeds after race expenses are put in a fund for any military person or family in our general locality that needs a helping hand. Funds are only distributed through the Hillacious Half; no monies are paid to any agencies such as Wounded Warrior or Disabled American Veterans. Both the male and female 1st place finisher will have their names engraved on the perpetual trophies that will remain housed in our Morgan-Weir American Legion Post 27 here in Litchfield.
