A special thank you to the Town of Coventry and to the Coventry Parks and Recreation Department for their strong support and assistance in making the 

Connecticut Veterans Day Patriot Race successful and fun.  Coventry has been voted into the "Playful City USA" for six years which makes it the perfect place to launch this great event to honor our veterans.  

Patriots Park on Lake Wangumbaug is well known for being an excellent area for recreation, with a guarded beach for swimming, a playground, a picnic area, lodge facilities, a community center, and band shell for summer concerts. The park is also the home of the Coventry Lake Water Ski Team and the UConn Women’s Crew Team. Next door is a boat launch run by the State of Connecticut. The lake is popular for fishing, boating, and water sports. Coventry also has two 18-hole public golf courses.
