The Manchester Road race is one of New England’s oldest and most popular road races. The 80th Manchester Road Race will be held on Thanksgiving Day. It starts and finishes on Main Street, in front of St. James Church.
The Connecticut Sports Writers’ Alliance recently honored the Manchester Road Race. The CSWA, which is comprised of sports journalists and broadcasters from throughout the state, presented its prestigious President’s Award to the Manchester Road Race Committee at its annual Gold Key Dinner in Southington.
The group gives the award each year to the individual, team or organization that has made a significant contribution to sports in Connecticut.
