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 250 person total, limit for these events. 

 
RACE DATA- 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 8:45 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 and run on the left side, 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 left side of the roads on this course as much as possible.
