The Connecticut Veterans Day Patriot Race is a fun and motivating event in our state to recognize and honor our brave men and women who have served.
All veterans and their families know about sacrifice and patriotism; and this event is an opportunity to celebrate and support the veteran organizations who serve them.
Following the race, the American Legion hosts a “Canteen” with hotdogs and chili and camaraderie with Veterans.
– Opening Ceremony: 9:45 a.m.
– Race Start: 10:00
Our 4-mile race will begin and end at Patriots Park in quiet Coventry, Connecticut. The race course is an old favorite of local runners from many years back when the Columbus Day Fall Classic race was held in Coventry. Fittingly, the race starts at Patriots Park and passes the Memorial Green, which is home to the Connecticut Vietnam Memorial and the Captain Nathan Hale Monument. This Connecticut Veterans Day Patriot Race has grown beyond the town’s boundary and is now a statewide event.
Location: Patriots Park, 172 Lake Street, Coventry, CT
