The New Haven Road Race is thrilled to announce the Faxon Law Group has signed on as title sponsor of the event for another three years! When the three-year commitment concludes, the law firm will have sponsored the iconic road race for 20 years. Faxon Law Group’s Title Sponsorship support is one of the Country’s longest of a major road race.

Faxon Law Group’s commitment enables the New Haven Road Race to bid to host the 2023 20K National Championship. The race has served as the 20K National Championship since 1991. Joel Faxon, founding partner at Faxon Law Group, states, “We’ve been a sponsor of this event for 17 years now,” said Faxon. “And I’m happy to do it for as many years the future of our firm allows as we see it as such a meaningful part of our identity in this community.”

The 2023 event takes place Monday, September 4 on the New Haven Green. The races consist of a Half Marathon, Relay, 5K, Town Fair Tire Kids Fun Run, and the signature 20K. The Faxon Law New Haven 20K hopes to again host the USATF 20K National Championship. It is the longest running national championship race in the United States. This year marks the 31st year a national championship event has been held in New Haven, making the race the longest running USATF Championship race ever.

The event is organized by JB Sports and a team of local volunteers who make up our Board of Directors. “We’ve been fortunate to continually grow and improve throughout our history,” New Haven Road Race President, Michael Dolan said. “Our partnership with Faxon Law Group has allowed this to happen. The event’s success over the past 46 years reflects the support we receive from the City of New Haven, our sponsors, and the local running community.”

The event’s other major sponsors include, the City of New Haven, Avelo Airlines, McDermott Lexus, AVANGRID, ACES, Town Fair Tire, Corsair, and Connecticut Orthopaedic Specialists. To learn more about the event or to register, visit www.newhavenroadrace.org.
