Enjoy a scenic 10K trek around beautiful Highland Lake in Winsted! This beautiful course presents a challenge as it is mostly flat course but does consist of a few gradual climbs.

The 1-Mile Kids run and the 2-Mile walk option for adults means that this event is fun for the whole family!

The Highland Lake 10K marks the third race in the Northwest CT YMCA's four-event Grand Prix Race Series, with the final event coming in November in the form of the 5K Zombie Chase Challenge at White Memorial in Litchfield. 

All monies raised during the Race Series go to support those who need the Y most, subsidizing Y memberships and programs for those who cannot afford it.
