Due to the overwhelming growth of the Stratton Faxon Fairfield Road Races, race organizers have decided the 31st annual event will take place over two days in 2011. The 5K takes place Saturday, June 25 and the half marathon on Sunday, June 26 at Fairfield's Jennings Beach. Last year's race had nearly 5,000 participants, this year the 5K is capped at 1,500 and the Half Marathon at 4,500. Over 1,000 runners have already entered the races. The event has been hosted from its inception by the Fairfield's Firefighters.
