The Milford Road Runners of Milford CT had a clear, warm winter day for the annual Winter Wonderland 5 Miler on January 27, 2019. Just a a week before, this area of New England was recovering from a windy icy storm that wreaked havoc in the area. On race day, 197 finishers were treated to 40 degree temps, bright sunshine, and a light breeze making for great run conditions.
Starting and finishing at Platt Regional Tech School in Milford CT, the course was a figure-8 through residential neighborhoods. No big hills but some shallow grades to make things interesting,
Well organized with a great after party, the Winter Wonderland 5 Miler was a perfect first race of the year to check fitness and set a baseline for the upcoming year. We finished with enough time to grab a camera and get some participants heading towards the finish.
