Our NEW 5K (or maybe 3 miles- we will let you know) course travels through the SCENIC, quiet neighborhood along the water in Stratford. It is FLAT, fun, and easily doable even for the youngest runners. Last year our runners ranged from 6 to 81!  This map is basically the course, but not all the way to the lighthouse. It will be a 5k or 3.11 miles or 3 miles once we accurately measure it. https://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=7439020
