The 4th Annual Jason Albarelli Memorial 3 mile Fundraiser is back as a live event! 

We look forward to seeing you a little later than in the past and with a new, slightly shorter course.


Jason was funny, handsome, outgoing, compassionate, and he had an infectious smile.  He would make you feel like you mattered. He appeared confident but underneath he struggled to mask his insecurities that came from his addiction.   He tried tirelessly to get help and support for his addiction by seeking new treatments, and always found strength and energy to carry him through for a short while.  These treatment options were hard to find and not easily accessible for those who are seeking help.


Our annual event was founded to remember Jason and bring awareness to the devastation that addiction causes families. Our goal is to support Shatterproof’s mission of reversing the addiction crisis in the U.S.  Shatterproof is a non-profit organization that uses evidence based research to advocate for policy changes at both the state and federal level. The race allows us to create a legacy for Jason and others who we have lost to addiction, while supporting change for the future.  Please encourage your friends and family to join us for what promises to be a meaningful way to remember Jason and bring together old and new friends.

Shatterproof - Jason Albarelli

COVID - event details (subject to updates and changes)

As of June 1st the CT guidelines allow for a mass start without masks if you are vaccinated. However, we encourage anyone that feels safer with a mask to use one prior to the start and after you finish.

MASKS are required if you are not vaccinated in accordance with CT CDC state guidelines.

We may decide to use a 'staggered start' which involves smaller groups starting at safe intervals if conditions change or guidelines are modified by the state.
