Miles For Margaritas

Sun May 5, 2024 Stratford, CT 06615 US


10 Washington Pkwy
Stratford, CT US 06615


Join us Sunday May 5th, for the 4th edition of the


   Stratford Little Pub's Miles for Margaritas 5k


We are sorry if you missed out but between a lack of parking, narrow streets, our town permit, and a limit to the margarita bags- we must close registration. If we get some cancellations or if the town suddenly build a 400 car parking garage in the next seven days, we’ll let you know!


You can run or walk the "chip timed" 3.11 mile/5k event or walk the UNTIMED Margarita Mile option. All abilities are welcome.

EVERYONE 21 & over is eligible for a terrific margarita after their finish. (N/a margaritas, other N/a fluids & soft drinks also available).



Both courses run through the scenic seaside neighborhood of Lordship, in Stratford. 
All participants in both events will receive the same 'swag' of t-shirt and more.


The 5k timed distance participants are eligible for awards & prizes in their age groups.

The untimed walk does not include any awards.

This safe, modified event follows all state guidelines and health department mandates.

  WE WILL LIMIT THIS TO 250 TOTAL PARTICIPANTS- DON'T WAIT! WE HAVE ACTUALLY STOPPED REG AT 275! Congrats to the last 25 people who registered!


The 5k Run/Walk is a bib, chip-timed event. You will receive your ‘net’ time.
A specially designed T-Shirt size will be guaranteed to entrants registered by midnight April 21. 
After that it's "as available" so don't delay!


Snacks, fruit, refreshments and fluids after you are done- and MARGARITAS for ages 21 and above only. ID NEEDED! 
We will also be serving the award winning Athletic Brew, non alcoholic craft brew.


Parking is available in lots of the Little Pub, along Washington Pkwy, and along the seawall.

Thanks to the many Departments of Stratford we will be able to present this outdoor event. Safe distances and safety protocols will be in place, and State/Town guidelines will be met. 
With fixed costs and pre-payment of many items, this means we CANNOT under any conditions REFUND any registration fees. Whether we are live or virtual our commitment to our charity will be maintained. We hope you can support this commitment and join us.
IMPORTANT DETAIL- There will be a 250 person total, limit for these events. 

RACE DATA- We will be using a chip-timed start FOR THE 5k EVENT ONLY. 
WE NEED YOUR HELP FOR A SAFE START- If you are truly at a speedy running level (6-7min pace per mile or under) we urge you to be at the start early and ready to go at the front 8:45 am. This will avoid crowding on the course and help everyone to run more safely. Thanks!

ON THE COURSE- We ask you to stay safe and run /walk on the left side, facing traffic for safety, and not to run in groups.
THE ONE MILE WALK ONLY is an UNTIMED EVENT- We ask you to keep a safe distance and please let any runners pass safely by staying to the left side of the roads on this course as much as possible. 


The Little Pub is proud to have a great team lead by owner Doug Grabe & Jillian Bass & staff. 
We are excited to have you join us for our fourth year of fun!.
