We are happy to remember Asta by continuing to sponsor this run in his memory. The course is an out and back route on roads with little traffic or with wide shoulders. The run starts in front of our house and follows the Connecticut River from the Rocky Hill Ferry going south to the Cromwell Outboard Association just above the Arrigoni Bridge. Two major elevation changes happen at about 4.5-5.0 miles and 7.75-8.0 miles. Course is marked with the infamous Asta signs. Aid stations at about 2.5, 5, 7.5 and at the turn around at 9.8 miles. No entry fee collected; instead please bring potluck food. We will provide drinks, vegetarian chili and hamburger stew afterwards at 42 Fern Street. I-91 to Exit 23. Left if southbound, right if northbound onto West Street. Left at stoplight onto Gilbert Avenue. Right at second stop sign just before crossing over I-91, Fern Street, Rocky Hill 06067. Please park on even side of street only.
