Pamby Ridgefield Half Marathon in Ridgefield, CT

Hosted by the locally based Wolfpit Running Club, the Pamby Ridgefield Half Marathon has been a staple on the local running circuit for more than a generation, as the race marks its 46th annual running this year, for an event that sees 400 to 500 runners or more cross the finish line.

The course for the race takes runners on a loop course along the rolling country roads through and just outside the town of Ridgefield, which lies in the foothills of New England’s Berkshire Mountains in the southwestern portion of Connecticut.

From the starting line near the Richard Venus Municipal Building just off East Ridge Street, the course takes runners southward along East Ridge and makes several twists and turns as it makes its way toward the Silver Spring Country Club, where runners will encounter a 4 1/2-mile loop part of the course that they run around twice.

After finishing this loop, runners follow Olmstead Lane to Wilton Road and Main Street, along the race’s home stretch to the downhill finish on Market Street.

    I am curious I want to do the half marathon in October. I am a walker not a runner…. are there walkers? I did Fairfield and I will never do it again…all runners and everything was taken down before people finished. Also is it really hilly?

    I registered for the half marathon over a week ago but did not get a confirmation email.
    Do you have me on the list of participants?
    Thank you,
