For 29 years MADD-CT has hosted one of the top events in Fairfield County. We look forward to having you join us for the 30th edition and help the programs and victims that MADD supports. There are many options and great family friendly pricing for you to take advantage of and enjoy. Our flat and scenic courses are easy to maneuver and encouraging for all ability levels. Last year our participants in the 5k distance ranged in age from 8 to 92!
We salute our Title Sponsor – Koskoff  Koskoff and Beider PC.  They have supported this event and MADD CT for many years. 
We thank our presenting sponsor Milford Bank for returning along with the Town of Stratford and many others who have helped us host a great event for 29 years.

We start and finish at the very scenic and bucolic Short Beach in Stratford. When you are done it’s just a 50 yard walk to the water! So take a cooling dip after your exciting finish. There will be a variety of food and fluids to enjoy with your friends, family and new acquaintances. After the awards ceremony we will have an exciting gift give away so stick around for the prizes.

We offer great commemorative shirts to pre registered by July 15 (to guarantee sizing). After that date the sizing will be as available, There are usually shirts available on the day of the event- but don’t take that chance- Please pre register! (It helps us to order many items if you are in our database on time).

The 5k distance- whether you run or walk- will be computer timed. The 2 mile Lighthouse Stroll and the Kids Scampers are untimed and non competitive.

There is plenty of parking at Short Beach- But park rules- NO DOGS/PETS ALLOWED. We are sorry- you cannot run with a dog in our event. Our FLAT courses are, however, very baby stroller friendly- if you are so inclined!
