Gibbet Hill Cattle Run 2019



Grab your old running shoes and join us for the 4th Annual Gibbet Hill Cattle Run while raising money for a great cause! 

Dodge cow-pies, navigate cattle trails, dash through 'castle ruins', and get ready to scale Groton's most famous peak, Gibbet Hill.  The Gibbet Hill Cattle Run is a 8.4 mile, three-person team relay with each team member running two 1.4 mile legs. Think you'll work up an appetite? Barbecue, beer, and live music will be waiting for you and your team at the finish line to help celebrate raising money for these great causes.  Webber Restaurant Group chefs will team up to create a fantastic barbeque menu that will be well worth your two treks around Gibbet Hill. 

To participate in the Run, the fee is $225 or teams must raise a minimum of $225.  All fees and monies raised will be donated to one or any combination of five 2018 beneficiaries (see below). Registration includes a place in the race, barbeque, and one beer for all three runners.  But don’t stop at $225!  Our fundraising platform will allow unlimited donation support from friends and family with some great prizes for target donation levels:

RAISE $1500 
If your team raises or donates $1500 or more, each team member will receive a ticket to our Hops & Crops dinner (to be held in November 2019, exact date to be determined.)

RAISE $5000
The top three fundraising teams that raises or donates over $5000 will be rewarded with a private dinner for six at the Webber Restaurant Group restaurant of your choice (Gibbet Hill Grill, Scarlet Oak Tavern, The Bancroft or Bancroft & Co.). The dinner will include a private menu created by the restaurant's executive chef, tailored to your cuisine preferences, complete with a welcome cocktail and wine pairings (restrictions apply, please click here for details).
