Countdown to Fairfield Half Marathon, June 25 — Come Cheer or Run with Us!

Fairfield University is once again a proud sponsor of the Faxon Law Fairfield Half Marathon and 5K taking place on Saturday, June 24 (5K) and Sunday, June 25 (Half). Last year's race included the Lucas Challenge, where the University's very own Lucas the Stag challenged runners to complete both the Half Marathon and the 5K, which requires running 16.3 miles in 24 hours. There were over 40 registered Fairfield University runners who participated in the Lucas Challenge, and over 360 total Fairfield University affiliates who raced in 2016.

This year, there is even more to be excited about as the University will also serve as the title sponsor for the new Fairfield University Lil’ Stags Kids Fun Run, a half-mile race for children ages 4-12, which will take place on Saturday, June 24.
