Club Connecticut To Host ‘Four on The Fourth’ Road Race in New Canaan on Saturday

Although summer is viewed by many New Canaanites as a time of relaxation, the local running community never stops. Club Connecticut will host the 33rd annual Four on the Fourth road race this Saturday at 9 a.m. starting at St. Mark’s Church. The four-mile race travels up Oenoke Ridge Road and onto West Road, continuing down West for a good stretch before turning around and heading right back to the church, and it usually has a few hundred participants, organizers say. “The Four on the Fourth, the last couple of years has [had] a couple hundred [participants],” race director Jim Gerweck told the New Canaanite.
