Beach Bunny 5K - Cancelled

In light of the potential public health risks presented by the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Fairfield Parks & Recreation has made the decision to take preventative measures by cancelling all public programming for the months of March & April, including our Beach Bunny 5K, Family Bunny Hop and Children's Easter Egg Scrambles, planned for Saturday April 11, 2020. This decision was made to best protect the health and safety of our patrons, staff, volunteers, and the community as a whole, and based on the recommendations of town and state officials. 

We have worked with RunSignUp to provide two (2) options for our registered participants including deferring your registration to next year's event or receiving a refund. Please note, you have until April 1, 2020 to make your decision. As of April 1, 2020, all outstanding responses will be automatically deferred to our 2021 Beach Bunny 5K & Family Bunny Hop.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate through these challenging times. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to seeing you at future events.
