Jim Fixx Memorial Day 5 Mile Run

Sun May 17 - Mon May 25 Greenwich, CT US 06830 Directions
Jim Fixx Race Goes VIRTUAL

In light of restrictions on public gatherings due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are unable to hold the Jim Fixx Memorial Day races as usual. Rather than cancel completely, and to raise money for Greenwich EMS and other first responders at the same time, we have decided to transition the events to Virtual.

The way it works is you run 5 miles, or a half mile for kids, on your own, anywhere, in the week leading up to Memorial Day. Then submit your time and we'll post your result on the RunSignUp race page. We'll mail out special Virtual Jim Fixx race T-shirts during race week as entries come in - please allow a few days for processing and mailing. NO PICKUP AT THREADS & TREADS, but be sure to order your shoes and other running gear online for quick delivery!

All proceeds from the event will be donated to Greenwich EMS who put themselves on the front lines of the current crisis.
