We welcome you to the 11th edition of our great event! This year we will be returning to the Walnut Beach pavilion where we have had our event since 2017.

Our course is designed for all abilities of runners and walkers. Flat & scenic roads that start and finish near the beach… you’ll be able to run fast, or easy, or walk comfortably at any pace. 


Here’s the link to the map: https://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6945562 

The streets that branch out from Walnut Beach will be resident-only parking and require beach stickers during the season, which lasts until Sept. 30, according to meeting minutes. The Walnut Beach parking lot will have the same limitations. Towing will be enforced.
Non-resident parking will be allowed on E. Broadway to Naugatuck Avenue South to Monroe Street. Towing will be enforced at metered parking spaces.

 

The proceeds of this year's events will go to several projects in Uganda that will be chosen soon.  The areas where we drill our wells are very rural. Kids walk miles each day to and from the watering hole to fetch water for drinking, bathing and cooking.  Unfortunately, the villagers share the water source with various animals so they have to boil it before using it. We'll dig a borehole that will allow them access to pure, clean water.  It will serve approximately thousands of people.  With your help, we can make this possible!


As always your contributions are fully tax deductible. We are approved by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501 (c) (3)organization.

We offer three events that will appeal to everyone. All abilities are encouraged to join in our events.

5K Course (3.1miles) is a computer timed event which you can RUN OR WALK.  Participants will need to complete the entire 3.1 mile course to be scored in results. This event offers awards to the overall male and female champions as well as age group awards. IF YOU WALK THIS DISTANCE YOU WILL BE GROUPED INTO ALL FINISHERS AND BE ELIGIBLE FOR AWARDS.
One mile (approx) WALK ONLY is an untimed event. Enjoy the scenic beauty of the beaches while walking at any pace from a stroll to a power walk! There are NO Awards for this non-competitive event.

Our kids fun run is  FREE for 12 years of age and under only.
A 1/10 mile course will be offered (parents can accompany if needed).
