This June, Run with the Stags… Again!

This year’s Faxon Law Half Marathon & 5K, Lucas Challenge, and Lil' Stags Kids Fun Run have miles of fun for everyone!

Fairfield University will once again be a proud sponsor of the Faxon Law Half Marathon and 5K on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2, 2019. Also, back for a third year is the Lil' Stags Kids Fun Run, as well as the Lucas Challenge — which dares runners to complete both the 5K and the half marathon, for a total of 16.2 miles in 25 hours.

The weekend’s events begin Saturday, June 1 with the 5K at 8 a.m., followed by the Lil’ Stags Kids Fun Run at 9 a.m. Then, on Sunday, June 2, the Half Marathon will start at 8 a.m., to be followed by a post-race beach party and awards ceremony.

Those who take on the Lucas Challenge will receive custom glassware, an exclusive medal, a one-of-a-kind race bib, and a bottle of Henkell Sparkling wine.

Back again this year for the half marathon is the Fairfield University Cheer Station, located not far from the finish line on Puritan Road.

The Half Marathon race began in 1981 with only 200 runners, and has grown into one of the premier running events in the United States. Accolades for the race include being named two-time host of the U.S. Women’s National Half Marathon Championship, three-time host of the National Masters’ Half Marathon Championship, and routinely being selected as one of the country’s top road races by Runner’s World magazine.
