Black Rock’s history spans nearly four centuries beginning as a colonial settlement. With its unique location, it played a pivotal role in the War for Independence. Black Rock then became a major trading and shipbuilding center for CT. In the last fifty years, it has transitioned into a thriving community linked to the growth of Bridgeport. Once an important industrial center, it has developed into a vibrant and close-knit community uniquely positioned to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

With fixed costs and pre-payment of many items, this means we CAN NOT under any conditions REFUND any registration fees. Whether we are live or need to go virtual our commitment to our charity funding will be maintained. We hope you can support this commitment and join us.
IMPORTANT DETAIL- There will be a 450 person limit for this 5k event. We need 200 people to break even with our fixed costs! We encourage everyone to donate any additional amount to the charity.
We will be using a chip-timed system with the chip attached to your bib. The bib must be pinned on the front area of your clothing- NOT on the BACK.
WE NEED YOUR HELP FOR A SAFE & SMOOTH START- If you are truly at a speedy running level (6-7min pace per mile or under) we urge you to be at the FRONT of the start and ready to go at 9 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, announce if you are passing from behind, and not to run in groups. PLEASE DO NOT USE EARPODS, HEADPHONES, or similar accessories which will keep you from responding to directions, traffic, emergency situations, and the wonderful sounds from our neighborhood and cheering fans!
PLEASE BE AWARE OF EACHOTHER'S PERSONAL SPACE- STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY. We will follow all state and city guidelines as it pertains to outdoor events.
