Enjoy a scenic 5K 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 5K Highland Hustle marks the third race in the Northwest CT YMCA's four-event Grand Prix Race Series, with the final event coming in November.

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