4 Miles — Compo Beach, Westport

Start at Compo beach and head up towards Hillspoint Road towards Compo Cove. The scenic views of the Sound will put your mind at ease as you sweat it out! Run until you are almost at i-95, and then turn right onto Grove Point Road. Run around the loop, and then retrace your steps until you get to Burham Hill. Make a right onto Burnham Hill, and make a left at the end of the road. Make a right onto Minute Man Hill and follow it around, staying right. Cross over Compo Beach Road South, past the statue and onto Compo Beach Road. Follow it around until you return to your starting point on the beach.

3 Miles — Weeburn Country Club, New Canaan

You don't have to be a member of Weeburn to run the three mile loop around it — so get out your running shoes and take advantage of this scenic route through town. You can start anywhere you can find parking! Just note that when running without sidewalks, you have to be extra cautious to watch for cars.
