Join us for our annual 5k Road Race through the streets of Seymour, Connecticut as we pound the pavement to fight breast cancer.

Let's Fight Breast Cancer

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. We held a naming contest in town and 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.

In the last 11 years 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 $1,000,000 from this event alone for breast cancer research!!  We hope this COMMUNITY knows 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!!!

Join us in Seymour

We will continue the tradition of running in Seymour, Connecticut.  If you would like to participate in the 5k in person, join us Saturday, October 7th in Seymour, CT.  Runners and walkers welcome.  Walkers with strollers are encouraged to start at the back of the pack.  We ask that you please leave your pets at home.

For all in-person attendees, spectators, and sponsors we ask that you abide by any local, state, or federal guidelines, ordinances and legislation as they may arise. 

Or from virtually anywhere!

In 2020 we introduced virtual racing to the Seymour Pink community and had over 1,600 participants across 30 states that year.  After seeing pink across the country, we decided to continue offering this virtual option so that our supporters can partake no matter where they are. 

If you'd like to participate virtually with us you can walk or run your miles anytime and anywhere during the 3-day virtual period of Friday, October 6, 2023 through Sunday, October 8, 2023.

Kids Fun Run

We offer a ~ half mile Kids Run to kick off our race morning events!  Children ages 8 and under can partake in this fun run in Seymour on October 7th or virtually from anywhere USA.
