Old Saybrook Goodwin Gallop 5K Presented by Whelen Engineering

  • The Kathleen E. Goodwin School Parent Teacher Association is hosting a 5K family fun run to help raise funds for updating play areas at the school while promoting health and fitness throughout the elementary school community. 

  • In Person Racing 2022

  • Donation: Any Amount Accepted

The race will start and end at Goodwin Elementary School and feature a fast and flat course through the Old Saybrook shoreline. Prizes will be given to male and female overall and age group winners.

T-shirts available for the first 50 registrants, don't wait.

Kids fun run will start at 8:30. Course will be two laps around the bus drop off area totaling about 1/4 mile.

5K will start at 9:00. Link to MapMyRun and course description below.

On Friday, 4/1, from 3-6pm, we will be at SoundRunner in Old Saybrook for shirt and bib pickup. Participants who pick up their stuff on Friday can also take advantage of a 20% discount at SoundRunner. This is a great way to support one of our sponsors and will also take some of the hassle out of race morning

Please arrive early to check-in and get your bib on race day. There will be limited parking at the school and Acton Library. If that is full, there is plenty of on-street parking nearby on Main St.

Please check out our generous sponsors below.

Contact us for additional Sponsorship Opportunities.
