Description

Join us to run, or walk, our beautiful 5k race route in Westbrook.

The Daisy Ingraham PTO is proud to present this community wide event to encourage a healthy and active lifestyle in our town while raising money for our young students at Daisy Ingraham Elementary School! The race will feature family friendly activities, food and awards for each division. Thank you in advance for joining our community event and supporting the youth of Westbrook!

Course Description: USATF certified course (CT14021JHP) begins at Daisy Ingraham elementary school and proceeds down a hill to Boston Post Road. Runners take a right onto Boston Post Rd. and proceed onto Seaside Avenue by taking a left. Picturesque views of Long Island Sound as the race continues on Seaside Avenue to the turnaround point. Race reverses and finishes back at Daisy.

The Kids Fun Run kicks off behind the school at 9:30am. Thank you to our good friends at the Valley Shore YMCA for organizing and running this fun event! It's a great way to get the whole family involved!
