In 2012, Seymour Tradition – a nonprofit organization in our town whose focus is on teaching young girls the values of sportsmanship teamwork and discipline, asked Seymour Pink, Inc. if we would co-host a 5K race. Seymour Pink was so excited about the offer to partner up with this fine organization. The 5K race POUNDING the Pavement for PINK was born! In our first year, both of these non-profit organizations realized a total of $24,000. These monies have helped both Seymour Pink and Seymour Tradition advance our missions.
Every year since we have co-hosted the Pounding the Pavement for Pink 5k, Thanks to the community’s support of this event , Seymour Pink has raised over $650,000 for breast cancer research!! We hope this COMMUNITY has any idea of the impact your support and donations will have on the men and women and their families victimized by this diagnosis ~ YOUR IMPACT is HUGE! THANK YOU!!!
We are so excited that for our TENTH 5k we can be back together in Seymour, Connecticut. If you would like to participate in the 5k in person, join us Saturday, October 2nd in Downtown Seymour, CT. Runners and walkers welcome.
For all in-person attendees, spectators, and sponsors we ask that you abide by any local, state, or federal guidelines, ordinances and legislation as it pertains to pandemic precautions.
In 2020 we introduced virtual racing to the Seymour Pink community and had over 1,600 participants across 30 states. We're going for more states this year for our 10th Annual 5k! GO BIG, GO PINK!
If you'd like to participate virtually with us you can walk or run your miles anytime during race weekend October 1st 2021 to October 3rd 2021.
We are offering the 5k distance virtually as well as keeping the PINK CHALLENGE, a 15k Challenge (combination of separate 5k and 10k distances). Those electing for the Pink Challenge will run/walk the 10k portion on their own virtually. But, you can choose to race the 5k in person in Seymour or the 5k component virtually.
Choose Pink Challenge options if you want to do BOTH 5k and 10k (separate registration for the individual events IS NOT required)
Please read the race options carefully to ensure you register for the option you'd prefer!
We encourage friends, family, and businesses to form a team. We have over 100 teams participating in years past and while this year poses challenges for being together in person, we KNOW that we can feel together in spirit and united in the FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER!
Of course we encourage individual participation as well. Are you a serious runner? In addition to trophies for the overall Male and Female finishers for our 5k in person race on October 2nd there will be awards for the following:
We are excited to announce that for our 2021 races all race finishers will earn MEDALS in addition to the official 2020 Pounding the Pavement for Pink race T-SHIRT!
****Register by August 15, 2021 to be guaranteed your medal and by September 15th be guaranteed your t-shirt.
Seymour Pink is an active grass roots organization with many exciting community minded fundraising events ranging from an annual pasta dinner, to a 5K run/walk here in Seymour, to our annual wine tasting gala at the Inn at The Waterview in Monroe, CT to the day that started it all, a day in October we proclaim as "Seymour Pink" Day where we "SEE MORE PINK" to raise awareness about this life altering disease. These amazing events are not only successful in raising funds to FIGHT breast cancer, but in bringing a community together in the FIGHT. The support for those victimized by this diagnosis is overwhelming.
Each event is an opportunity to lend support to those who battle this disease. Each event hosted by PINK or by individuals in the community, brings us closer to conquering this disease and putting cancer where it belongs: in our history books! Please visit our website http://seymourpink.com or visit our Facebook page for more information about our events and contact us today to join in this community's FIGHT against breast cancer as we "SEE MORE PINK" and raise awareness one event at a time.
Entry fees are non-refundable, non transferable or tax deductible.
