If you can make it, this is a fun one. The Somers Great Escape is a true "destination race". Both the 5k & 5-Mile courses are closed to vehicle traffic and USATF Certified. The field has been increasingly competitive, with recent course records of 14:04/16:06 for the men's/women's 5k and 23:28/26:39 for the men's/women's 5-Mile. Over $3,500 in cash prizes! Everyone gets shirts too. There is a parade immediately following the race. Then everyone goes to the Four Town Fair, which officially opens after the parade. If you've never run the Great Escape before, give it a shot. All proceeds from the race fund the Somers Rotary Scholarship Fund. Here's the website: www.SomersGreatEscape.com.
