Join us Sunday May 1st  for the 2nd Annual Stratford Little Pub's Miles for Margaritas & Cinco de Mama 5k. This year we combined the two nearby events to produce an early celebration of both Cinco de Mayo and Mother's Day!


You can run or walk the "chip timed" 3+ mile event or walk the UNTIMED Margarita Mile option.


Both courses run through the scenic seaside neighborhood of Lordship, in Stratford. 
Regardless of distance, all participants will receive the same 'swag' and be treated to a terrific post-race margarita (soft drinks and non-alcoholic options also available).

 

All 5k distance, timed participants are eligible for awards & prizes in their age groups.

The untimed walk does not include any awards.


This safe, modified event follows all state guidelines and health department mandates.

SAFETY MODIFICATIONS
Thanks to the many Departments of Stratford we will be able to present this outdoor event. Safe distances and safety protocols will be in place, and State/Town guidelines will be met. 
With fixed costs and pre-payment of many items, this means we CANNOT under any conditions REFUND any registration fees. Whether we are live or virtual our commitment to our charity will be maintained. We hope you can support this commitment and join us.
 
IMPORTANT DETAIL- There will be a 200 person limit for these events. 

 
MODIFICATIONS FOR A SAFE TIMED START- We will be using a chip-timed start FOR THE 5k EVENT ONLY.  This has been successfully used in various races around the state by our production company.
WE NEED YOUR HELP FOR A SAFE START- If you are truly at a speedy running level (6-7min pace per mile or under) we urge you to be at the start early and ready to go at the front 8:30 am. This will avoid crowding on the course and help everyone to run more safely. Thanks!

ON THE COURSE- We ask you to stay safe, announce if you are passing from behind, and not to run in groups.

 

THE ONE MILE WALK ONLY UNTIMED EVENT- We ask you to keep a safe distance and please let any runners pass safely by staying to the side of the course as much as possible.
