Description

We invite you to lace up your sneakers for a family friendly run and walk from Greens Farm academy.  You'll be in a great, scenic location with beautiful water views.  The Dragon Dash features a gentle 5k course that winds along Long Island Sound. All ages and fitness abilities are welcome and encouraged.

Our events start with an untimed, non competitive, half mile Family Fun Run at 8.45 am. The 5K run -or walk - starts at 9.00am. 

The 5k starts and finishes on the Greens Farm Academy campus where there's plenty of parking. The loop course runs on quiet roads and features some great water views. The only slight hill is in the first mile- then its downhill and flat after that. No matter what your ability level or speed- this course will be one you'll enjoy and remember.  Here's the link to our course map:  http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=7191675 

All 5k participants will be computer timed and eligible for awards. Prizes & medals will be given out for the overall mens & womens champions as well as three deep in at least seven age groups from elementary students all the way up to 60+years. 

Everyone pre registered by April 1 will be guaranteed a commemorative t-shirt. After that date it will be 'as available'. Please pre register before the deadline. We will have post run/walk refreshments and fluids as well.

We encourage all abilities to join us on this great course. Run or walk- either way you will have a great experience!

The Komera Project helps young Rwandan women to "be brave, have courage" by providing secondary and post-secondary scholarships, building community, and inspiring confidence through sports, leadership training, and entrepreneurial opportunities. The Komera Club at GFA was founded five years ago to promote greater awareness and deeper understanding of issues related to girls' education and empowerment, both locally and globally. In partnership with the Komera Project, through bake sales and special events, the club supports three Komera scholars -- Olive, Solange, and Ruth.
