Our printer requires us to place our shirt order by June 1st (to ensure the shirts are ready for race day). The volume of shirts we order is based on the number of registrations. The only way to guarantee a t-shirt and/or desired size is to register before the t-shirt deadline.
All races will have a rolling start to provide for safe social distancing. The 5K will start at 8:45 am and the Kids Fun Run will start at 10:00 am.
We will start on the grass (We will need to stay on the grass in the park because the road will be open to traffic) then transition to the paved path that goes around the ball fields, where we will pick up the Farmington Canal trail. Both courses are out and back - once you hit the half way mark there will be a turnaround and then you will head back to the finish.
