Virtual Race 5K

This year, we have set up a virtual 5K race for to help raise funds for our event. What’s a virtual race? It is a “race” that can be run (or walked) at any location or time you choose. Run or walk on the road, trail, treadmill, track, or even at another race. You get to run/walk your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. Or, challenge your friends and form a team to complete 65K as a group! Participants will receive a 2018 Run For the Fallen CT T-Shirt and custom challenge coin upon registration in lieu of a medal. This is also a great way to participate remotely if you are not able to attend the event in September. The virtual race will be open through September 23, 2018. 


Address: Walnut Grove Rd., Middletown, CT 06457

Parking will be on-site at Veterans Memorial Park. The park entrance for the event is the intersection of Old Mill Rd. and Walnut Grove Rd. (the west side of the park).
