2017 Gibbet Hill Cattle Run

cattle run pic 2017-2



Grab your old running shoes and join us for the 2nd Annual Gibbet Hill Cattle Run & BBQ while raising money for a great cause! 

Dodge cow-pies, navigate cattle trails, dash through ‘castle ruins’, and get ready to scale Groton’s most famous peak, Gibbet Hill.  The Gibbet Hill Cattle Run is a 8.4 mile, three-person team relay with each team member running two 1.4 mile legs. Think you’ll work up an appetite? Barbecue, beer, and live music will be waiting for you and your team at the finish line to help celebrate raising money for these great causes.  Webber Restaurant Group chefs will team up to create a fantastic barbeque menu that will be well worth your two treks around Gibbet Hill.

This year we have changed our registration model.  To participate in the Run, each team must raise a minimum of $600 which will be donated to one or any combination of six 2017 beneficiaries (see below). Registration includes a place in the race, barbeque, and one beer for all three runners.  But don’t stop at $600!  Our fundraising platform will allow unlimited donation support from friends and family with some great prizes for target donation levels:

RAISE $1500 
If your team raises or donates $1500 or more, each team member will receive a ticket to our Hops & Crops dinner (to be held in November 2017, exact date to be determined.)

RAISE $5000
The top three fundraising teams that raises or donates over $5000 will be rewarded with a private dinner for six at the Webber Restaurant Group restaurant of your choice (Gibbet Hill Grill, Scarlet Oak Tavern, or The Bancroft). The dinner will include a private menu created by the restaurant’s executive chef, tailored to your cuisine preferences, complete with a welcome cocktail and wine pairings (restrictions apply, please click here for details).

Gibbet Hill Grill Bar Expansion Update

ghg construction

Our bar expansion has reached a major milestone!  With the exterior nearly complete, our construction team tore down the bar and the exterior wall of the original bar to begin interior construction and design.

A wall has been build to enclose the new construction area, where our construction team will work quickly to build our new bar!  We are still on target for the new expansion to be complete in April, just a few weeks away!
