This Race has been CANCELLED refunds offered through April 30, 2020

Unfortunately, due to the State of CT's and the City of Meriden's recent directives restricting large gatherings, the 2020 Daffodil Festival and the 21st annual Daffodil 5K Road Race have been CANCELLED.  

While the cancellation of this year's race is deeply disappointing to the club members, race volunteers, and race participants who have made it such an important fundraiser for the past 21 years, the health and safety of the community is of paramount importance.  We promise we will be back in 2021 better than ever!

The club will gladly refund registration fees and sponsorship dollars to any paid participants and sponsors.  However, we ask that you consider donating your registration and/or sponsorship fees to the club to ensure that we have enough funding available to help our local community.  Our club is a vibrant service club and we count on fundraising dollars to help support the Meriden community.  We redistribute all of the money we make on fundraisers like the Road Race back into the community.  

Refunds will be given through April 30th. If no response is received by April 30th we will designate your registration fee as a donation to The Meriden Rotary Club.


Thank you,

Peter Wnek, Daffodil 5K Chairperson
