Wed March 17 - Sat March 20 Coventry, CT 06238 US Directions

Looking for a great race to end your winter season or start your spring season? Just looking for a fun race to run with friends and family? Then this is for you!

This year we will have the 2nd running of the Make-A-Wish CT 5k Road Race in Coventry, CT, and the inaugural Make-A-Wish CT 5k Road Race #2 in Bethany, CT! These two events now form the Make-A-Wish CT 5k Road Race Series. Come join us on Saturday, March 20th for race #1 in Coventry and on Sunday, March 21st for race #2 in Bethany for a weekend of making a difference! Proceeds from each of the races will go directly to Make-A-Wish CT to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses!  

Coventry is a rural town located ten minutes away from the University of Connecticut and is populated with hilly, forested roads. This portion of the Make-A-Wish 5k Road Race Series will be held at Laidlaw Park and feature a hilly (but not too hilly!) 5k loop. This race will be run (tentatively) on March 20th, 2021 as part of the Make-A-Wish 5k Road Race Series.   

The town of Bethany is a small, rural Connecticut town located about twenty minutes from the hustle and bustle of New Haven.  Following along the roads in the area, this portion of the Make-A-Wish 5k Road Race Series will consist of an all pavement, flat, out-and-back route starting and ending at the Bethany Town Hall.  This race will be run (tentatively) on March 21st, 2021 as part of the Make-A-Wish 5k Road Race Series.
