Running the Gauntlet

Published October 04. 2012 10:00AM   Updated October 10. 2012 12:14PM

After a mile along an barrier-strewn footpath, a climb over a wall, and a mile-long beach run (with more obstacles, including a couple of of dips into the Sound), Derek Torrellas and Liam Regula head into the final mile of fun before the finish line. Approximately 500 ready-and-raring participants tackled the first annual Run the Gauntlet 5K Race at Hammonasset Beach State Park on Sept. 30. The event featured a 3.1-mile race through hay bales, tires, water, cargo nets, and other obstacles. Organized by local retailer Trailblazer, the race benefits the Shoreline Greenway Trail, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a 25-mile biking and walking path spanning from Lighthouse Point in New Haven to Hammonasset Beach.After a mile along an barrier-strewn footpath, a climb over a wall, and a mile-long beach run (with more obstacles, including a couple of of dips into the Sound), Derek Torrellas and Liam Regula head into the final mile of fun before the finish line.
