We’re going virtual this year!  The Town of Fairfield has prohibited all races until at least 2021, so to keep the tradition alive and help us continue to donate race proceeds to local charities such as Wakeman Boys/Girls Club, Domestic Violence Crisis Center, Junior Achievement, Fairfield Museum, Pequot Library, Westport EMS and more, we hope you'll join us virtually. 

This means you can run 5 miles (or walk 2.6 miles) anywhere you choose between November 21 and noon on November 26.  You can post your time and be listed in the overall standings.  You'll receive an email or text with instructions on how to post your time (you can even upload your GPS record) and all results will appear on this race page. If you are in Southport, we ask that you run/walk your 5 miles or  walk 2.6 miles prior to Thanksgiving Day since there will be no road markings on the usual race course nor will there be police at the intersections. Please remember to maintain social distance and run in small groups when doing your virtual run!

Also, don’t forget that the Pequot Running Club has organized runs every Tuesday (from either Compo Beach or Longshore Park) and Thursday (from ASF Sports & Outdoors) evening and on Sunday morning from the Wakeman Boys/Girls Club.  For more information about the club email:

Race Swag

Custom neck gaiters, perfect for staying warm or to wear as pandemic appropriate masks, to the first 500 to register!

After you've done your run, you should post your time to our results page. You'll receive an email or text with instructions on how to do so, but here's an explanation of the process just in case.
