Runners follow an out-and-back course through this small southern Connecticut city just north of New Haven at the Hamden Hills Half Marathon, which starts and finishes on the campus of Quinnipiac University. From there, the course unfolds along the backcountry roads along the northern edge of town, culminating in a loop around the northern end of West Rock Ridge State Park, before taking runners back toward the Quinnipiac campus for the race finish.
