We are so excited to announce this year's Floyd's 5K will be in person although the POCO fest has been canceled! 

The original PoCo Fest 5K was created by Floyd Parness in 2009. Coach Floyd was a beloved and respected coach in North Branford for over three decades. These events are a testimony to Floyd and the lasting effect he had on kids and adults alike. The committee dedicates many hours to put this together and is led by his three children Jennifer, Todd and Dave. The race takes place on the cross country course where he spent much of his time maintaining the course and most importantly coaching his athletes. 

This year's proceeds will be going towards the Floyd Parness Scholarship Fund.  Each May, two North Branford seniors will receive scholarships. These students have run indoor track, outdoor track and/or cross country, the sports in which Floyd coached. They exhibit traits which Floyd felt so strongly about including heart, dedication and perseverance. Thank you to everyone for your anticipated participation.  We are amazed every year by the amount of amazing volunteers and participants that come out to support this race.

If you would like to donate directly to the scholarship fund, you may donate on this site or you may also make checks payable to the "Floyd Parness Scholarship Fund."  Checks are to be mailed to: 88 Pine Street, Wallingford CT 06492.  Your support is appreciated!  

The schedule for the race is as follows:
Sunday, August 8th
Kids fun run (12 and under): 9:00am
