Whether you run competitively or run for fun, this year’s Faxon Law Half Marathon & 5K, Lucas Challenge, and Lil Stags Kids Fun Run has something for everyone!
Fairfield University is once again a proud sponsor of the Faxon Law Half Marathon and 5K, Saturday June 2 and Sunday, June 3, 2018. And back for another year is the Lil Stags Kids Fun Run, as well as the Lucas Challenge, which dares runners to run the 5K and half marathon.
The weekend’s events begin Saturday, June 2 with the 5K followed by the Lil’ Stags Kids Fun Run at 9 a.m. Then on Sunday, June 3, the Half Marathon starts at 8 a.m., followed by a post-race beach party and awards ceremony.
Those who take on the Lucas Challenge – a total of 16.2 miles in 24 hours – receive an exclusive hat, a medal, a one-of-a-kind race bib, and a bottle of Henkell Sparkling wine.
