UPDATES-

We will have early pickup for pre reg at Sound Runner on the Post Rd in Fairfield Center on Thursday April 25 from 3-7pm. Yes you will be able to pick up for others AND there will be a 15% discount for all registered runners who come in. There will be late registration available too.

 

Saturday 4/27- Event Morning - PLEASE arrive early! There are other school activities that morning which will force the closure of gates into the campus at 8:15 am. We must do this for safety reasons. Any parking at that point will need to be at the close-by Greens Farm RR Station. From there it is a short walk to the campus. Thanks for your understanding.

 

We invite you to lace up your sneakers for a family friendly 5k (3.1mi) run and walk from Greens Farm Academy.  You'll be going through 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 event 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. 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 run & walk participants will be computer timed and eligible for awards. Prizes & medals will be given out for the overall men’s & women’s champions as well as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, in at least seven age groups from elementary students all the way up to 60+years. 

Everyone pre registered by April 17 will be guaranteed a commemorative t-shirt by size. After that date it will be 'as available'. Please pre register before the deadline. We will have post run/walk fluids and refreshments as well.

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

Our event benefits Komera Project which 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 six 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.
