Manchester Running Company is pleased to bring you two great races on September 14th and 16th to raise funds for charitable organizations right here in CT! The action kicks off on Thursday, September 14th in Shelton with the Barnum Financial Group Run 4 Life 5k and two days later (Saturday, September 16th) we’ll host the 5th Annual Ann Miller CT Women of Hope Run in Mansfield. Prices for both events increase after Labor Day.
The Barnum Financial Group Run 4 Life 5k benefits the Foundation 4 Life and is great post-work event for you and your co-workers or friends in Fairfield County. The race takes place in and around the corporate park near the Trap Falls Reservoir. The race is a certified 5k and starts at 6:00 p.m. with great prizes, team competition and free Colony Grill pizza for all! The Colony Grill pizza is generously sponsored by Nationwide Insurance. All participants receive an event t-shirt, professional chip timing and the opportunity for bragging rights against your office neighbors.
The CT Women of Hope Run is a 5k/10k run or 1-mile walk on September 16th and Mansfield Middle School. The rolling course is in a quiet area of town, takes place on the roads, and features a single loop for the 5k or a double-loop for the 10k. All proceeds benefit the CT Women of Hope, raising funds for survivors of Ovarian Cancer; all the money raised by the CT Women of Hope stays right here in Connecticut, to benefit those in most need. Finishers of the 5k/10k receive a beautiful finishers medal; the race is professionally chip timed.
We look forward to seeing you out at the races and please help us spread the word!
