We are thrilled to be hosting the fourth edition of our Lordship – Short Beach community event. In 2020 it was the first running event in town after restrictions were lifted. With close to 200 participants last year we are planning to go past that number!
Don’t get shut out. We will limit this event to 350 runners.

With the cooperation of our Stratford town departments we will host this event from the very scenic Short Beach in Stratford CT, Saturday, Aug. 5th.

The 5K event is limited to 350 people. The 1+ mile untimed walk is limited to 100 people.
*We are counting on you to help follow all safety procedures on your end so that we can have a very successful event!

ALL ABILITIES ARE ENCOURAGED. You can run or walk this 5K (3.1mi) course. Everyone that enters is part of our computer-timed event & eligible for awards. If you chose NOT to be timed please let us know when you pick up your bib.

The Short Beach Run also offers a shorter, 1+ mi walk option.

PLEASE NOTE – this 5K event is NOT the MADD DASH. This is the fourth year for the event designed and owned by MS Running Productions. Our charity partner is MADD CT which will use donations to help them with their programs.
