The inaugural Weston Reservoir Run, a 13.1 mile half marathon featuring a scenic New England course along the beautiful Saugatuck Reservoir in Fairfield County, Connecticut, is coming soon to Weston.

Sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Weston, Connecticut, this event promises to draw participants from near and far on Sunday, November 11th to the Weston High School football field where the race will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m., rain or shine, and end when the last runner returns to cheers, medals and more. The event was originally scheduled for November 4 but postponed due to the effect of Hurricane Sandy.

The Weston course is USATF certified and open to the first 700 runners who register. Please register now and don't get shut out. To register, go to the web site For questions regarding the race,send email to:

While the Weston half marathon is a professional level race, it has been carefully designed to appeal to both professional and amateur runners of all capabilities. There is even a "Kids Fun Run" for the younger set, ages 8-and-under and 9-and-over, with a ribbon prize for each participant.

A special welcome is offered also to runners who may have been shut out from the New York City Marathon which attracts upwards of 100,000 applicants for 40,000 available slots. In addition, for spectators interested in following its progress, the NYC Marathon will be shown live on a giant indoor screen in the Weston High School cafeteria.

The title sponsor for the Weston Reservoir Run is Gatorade. Other sponsors include The Fairfield County Bank, Subway, The Sports Authority, Chabaso Bread of New Haven, Deadly Grounds Coffee, Ola! Foods, IT Consultants of J2A Systems,Van Deusen and Levitt, Peter's Market and Peter's Spirits.

The beneficiaries of this event are Purple Hearts Home, Inc. which provides personalized housing solutions for service connected disabled veterans and their families; Eliminate, a Kiwanis International and UNICEF partnership to eliminate the deaths of some 60,000 infants and 30,000 mothers inflicted with tetanus at birth; and the Foundation of the Kiwanis Club of Weston which has worked quietly and diligently for over 30 years to assist youth and citizens of all ages through a combination of philanthropy and community service.
