Description

10k run through East and South Norwalk.

NEW LATER START TIME - 9 AM!

After meeting with the Norwalk Police, we have come up with a revised course that keeps the best elements of the original and eliminates many of the headaches. Gone are the construction and hill on East Wall Street, fighting angry motorists at Exit 16 of I-95, dodging cars and trying to figure out which way to go at the traffic circles at the ends of Gregory Boulevard, and passing by two large Catholic churches. Instead, you'll be treated to a few miles of the paved Norwalk River Valley Trail through Matthews and Oyster Shell Parks.

However, to accommodate crossing the Danbury Branch train tracks at halfway, we must move the start an hour later to 9 a.m. So, you get to sleep an extra hour on Mother's Day. And if you've made plans for brunch afterward, you may want to change your reservation, or run a little faster!

Check out the map of the new course - we think you're going to love it!

PROCRASTINATORS' DELIGHT (New Race Day Registration Process)

Do you wait until the last minute to decide to run a race, then hate scribbling information on an entry form (we hate that too!), and stress while you're waiting in line to pay, only to find they're out of T-shirts? Well rejoice, we have the solution!

Online registration will remain open until after the race start time of 9 a.m. (although the price goes up by $3 at midnight Saturday). So you can wake up, go online, register, then drive to Calf Pasture and skip the race day registration lines and go right to the pre-entry line where you can check in. Heck, you can register on your phone in the beach parking lot when you arrive, or even on the way to the race (as long as someone else is driving!). Armed with RunSignUp's Check In app, our volunteers can check in a runner in less than a minute, especially if you bring your confirmation email with QR code (we can scan it from your phone).

If you register in person using old-fashioned paper forms, you will be charged a higher fee ($30 for the 10k run, $25 for the walk).

This is the wave of the future in race registration and check-in (New York Road Runners has been doing it for several years) and we think it's going to make things easier for runners and race organizers alike. As the Mother's Day 10K enters its fifth decade, it's time to leave the past behind - come join us!
