The 22nd Annual "Run for The Cove" is a fun family event for all ages. "Walk, Run and Join in the Fun!" A 5K Certified Road Race,  2 Mile Memorial Walk and Kids' Fun Run help to raise funds for Cove programming statewide. Thank you for helping us further our mission to provide "hope and healing" for grieving children and teens! This year's race will return to its traditional location at Hammonasset Beach State Park, with enhanced trails for running and walking. The new BURT Trail is fully paved and 100% off road running along the water to Meigs Point. The 2 Mile Memorial Walk is also on the BURT Trail and scenic Boardwalk with beach views. The Kids Fun Run is held on an all grass special course. This event benefits The Cove Center for Grieving Children that provides free services for children grieving the death of a significant person in their lives. Be certain to arrive early for Registration pick up and fun kid's activities!
