The Sports Massage Team (SMT) has wrapped up another successful season! In 2017 we welcomed several new members, including four students from Asnuntuck Community College.
We also added two new races to the calendar and were very well received at both. Looking forward, our 2018 SMT calendar will include one new event: the Steeple Chase Bike Tour in Mansfield, CT.

The 2018 schedule looks like this:

  • Danbury 1/2 Marathon: Sunday, April 8 at the Danbury War Memorial, Rogers Park, Danbury
  • Spring Fling 600: Sunday, May 6 at YMCA Camp Sloper, Southington
  • Fairfield 1/2 Marathon: Sunday, June 3 at Jennings Beach, Fairfield
  • New Event! Steeple Chase Bike Tour: Saturday, August 18 at Eastern Connecticut State University athletic complex, Mansfield
  • Hartford Marathon: Saturday, October 13 at Bushnell Park, Hartford
  • Fall Fling 400: (tentative date) Sunday, November 4 at YMCA Camp Sloper, Southington
  • Manchester Road Race: Thursday, November 22 at Bennet Academy Gym, Manchester

I am still looking for an Event Coordinator for the Danbury 1/2 Marathon, preferably someone from the Danbury area who knows the licensed massage therapists in the Danbury area (you see where I’m going with this). I also need a co-coordinator for the Spring Fling and Fall Fling races. Anyone interested, please contact me at
or call or text (860) 620-2956.
