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. This event is 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.
All of the proceeds from the race go 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: 14 Mauro Street, Durhan CT 06422. Your support is appreciated!
