2018 Ridgefield Half Marathon

Yes, we have fun runs on the weekends!

Please join us on our Saturday and Sunday morning fun runs. We gather in the Ridgefield Playhouse parking lot and leave at 8:00 a.m. sharp! Since We are runners of various abilities, we break off into groups and run at different paces and for different distances. Some of us may run five miles, others seven and others 10. So please join us! The Ridgefield Playhouse is located in the Richard Venus Municipal Building, which is on East Ridge and adjacent to the Ridgefield Police Station. The parking lot is behind the building. Take Main Street to Governor Street, then take a left off of Governor Street after the intersection of Governor and East Ridge.

We run at 8:00 a.m. sharp!

Sad Wolfpit News

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of two beloved members of the Wolfpit family.  Alan Bates passed away on October 2 from prostate cancer; he was 59.  Alan was a great runner and a wonderful person, always lending a hand at the annual Lubrano Fest.  Alan was a very giving person; he didn't just talk the talk, he walked the walk.  You can read more about his life here.  To take a line from his obituary, when you miss Alan, do something he would do - something philanthropic, something adventurous, something with a generous heart. 


Kazumasa "Kaz" Oda, passed away suddenly on November 30; he was 76.  Kaz was an accomplished artist and an accomplished runner, with 41 marathons under his second degree black belt in judo. Kaz came to the United States from Japan in 1942.  He loved to travel to Japan as well as Ireland.  Later in his life, Kaz took up ballroom dancing, at which he excelled.  Kaz was featured in an issue of Wolftracks.  You can read about his amazing life here.  An obituary for Kaz can be read here.
