The Canaan Railroad Days Run Sunday July 16, 2017, in North Canaan, which stepped off from Lawrence Pavilion and made its way along a rather hilly course, drew 192 runners from throughout Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts and even as far away as California. The top finisher was Brandon LeClair, 20, of Goshen, with a time of 28:21 (5:41 per mile pace). Run 169 Towns Society member Charlie Merlis of West Hartford completed his 169th town and was coronated King Charles the Magnificant. He joins an elite handful of members who have run a town in every municipality in the Nutmeg State.
