  • A Record Rooster Run

    To the Editor:

    Thanks to the Newtown community for coming out on Saturday June 15th in support of the Newtown Parks and Recreation’s 39th annual Rooster Run/Walk 5K.  We had 464 finishers, a Rooster Run record!  It was the closest finish ever with Kevin Hoyt and Zack Shwartz finishing in 15:09. What a great way to kick off the summer season here in town.

  • Hoyt, Schwartz Lead Rooster Run Pack

    Kevin Hoyt and Zach Schwartz led a field of nearly 500 participants in the 39th Annual Rocking Rooster Run at Fairfield Hills on June 15. Both former Newtown High School distance running standouts finished the 5K race in a time of 15:09. Hoyt narrowly edged out Schwartz to claim first-place honors. Hannah Schwartz, Zach Schwartz’s sister, was the top female participant.

    Runners were treated to sunny skies and comfortable temperatures in the low 60s for the 8 am competition.
