SATURDAY, MAY 18, 2013


The Riverfront Children's Center of Groton will host the SEVENTH ANNUAL RIVERFRONT RUN on Saturday, May 18 at 9:30am.  All ages and abilities are welcome.  The RIVERFRONT RUN is the only Annual Road Race scheduled within Groton City and a great way to kick off the running season, whether you are a serious runner, just want to have a fun morning at Eastern Point Beach, or anywhere in between! 


Early registration fee for the RIVERFRONT RUN is $15.00 per person for either course. Children under ten are free with a registered adult and there is a family maximum of $45.00.  Online registration is available now at, or by contacting the Riverfront Childrens Center at [email protected].  You can also download a PDF of the registration form at the Centers website,  Race day registration is $20.00 and open between 8:00 and 9:15 am.  All pre-registered participants receive event t-shirts, which are available on race day while they last. 


The Riverfront Run offers two courses, a 5K+ Road Race and a Family Fun Run. The 5K+ is a USATF certified, 3.425 mile loop course that begins and ends at Eastern Point Beach and follows a scenic route through Shennecossett Golf Course and local neighborhoods. The course is relatively flat and fast; and timing is by SNERRO.  The Family Fun Run follows a shorter 1.3-mile course on quiet residential streets and is perfect for younger runners, walkers and families, including those with strollers.  All families receive a participation certificate and all children receive a medal for finishing. 


All proceeds of the RIVERFRONT RUN benefit Riverfront's Tuition Assistance Program, which provides need based, Center awarded scholarships to some of Riverfront's neediest, most at-risk children.  Join us for a fun morning and support a great cause, too! 


The 2013 Riverfront Run will again offer the Bartnicki Good Effort Prize, a cash award to a non-placing runner in the 5K field and the Bartnicki Family Raffle, a cash prize to a registered Fun Run participant chosen by random drawing.  The Bartnicki Family of Preston, long time road-racing enthusiasts, sponsors both prizes.  Prizes are awarded to top finishers following the race, and delicious chowder, also sponsored by the Bartnicki family, is served. 


The Riverfront Childrens Center provides high quality, NAEYC accredited early education experience and full time care to over 100 children each day, many from working families who would otherwise be unable to afford it.  Riverfront also offers referral services, on-site support, and educational opportunities for parents.  The Riverfront Children's Center is a 501-c-3 non-profit, and contributions are tax deductible.


Please contact Susan Bailey at the Riverfront Childrens Center, 860-445-2831, for further information.
