NEW Spring Ahead series features inaugural Collinsville Classic 10K

The new “Spring Ahead: 5K to 10K” 3-race series will jumpstart your spring race season with two popular events and culminate in a brand new point-to-point 10K running Farmington to Collinsville.  The progression from the 3.1 mile O’Hartford 5K on March 20, to the Legends 4-Mile in Middletown on April 3 and ending with the 6.2 mile Collinsville Classic 10K on May 1 provides an achievable and fun goal.  

Whether you’re a relative running newbie, you want to motivate yourself this winter with a new training goal or you're someone who has fallen off the race circuit for a while (as I like to lovingly call, a “USTA”),  this series will give you reason to run - great courses and new bling, a commemorative Spring Ahead medal.  And, our free training guide will motivate you to race beyond 5K or help ramp up your training for later spring, longer distance race events. 

Registration Requirements
You must register for the package to be eligible to receive the commemorative medal and free training guide – do NOT register for events individually.  Note, if you choose to participate in the O’race Trinity Series and the new Spring Ahead: 5K to 10K series, you may do so only by following these directions: Register for the Spring Ahead: 5K to 10K series, register for the Courthouse O’Putnam 5K and the O’Niantic 5K as individual events.

NEW Collinsville Classic 10K
This is going to be a real beauty, 6.2 miles along the scenic riverside from Farmington to Collinsville.  Course details are still being finalized but we will be limited to the first 800 runners and expect to sell it out.

The multiuse trail along the Farmington River will be utilized, providing a flat, shaded course filled with scenic views.  The finish in downtown Collinsville will feature a great post-race party hosted by the Collinsville Downtown Merchants. 

A custom water bottle will be included in your entry fee as race swag.  Short sleeve cotton or tech shirt is available for purchase as well.


  1. Will it be possible to participate in the series but register for the Middletown Half rather than the 4 miler?

  2. I have the same question as David

  3. I registered for the Spring Ahead series. When can i expect the free training guide?
