This event is dedicated to fitness and fun for the whole family with three different races in Rowayton (a coastal village within Norwalk) followed by a fall Family Fun Day at Bayley Beach.

The day begins at 8:15 a.m. with a 100-yard dash for the littlest athletes, followed at 8:30 a.m. by a one-mile run that families can walk or run together. The races culminate at 9 a.m. with a stroller-friendly, chip-timed 5K race that will bring runners through one of the most beautiful routes in the area.

Once the races are complete, CCNS will host a fall Family Fun Day with food trucks, face painting, balloon animals, an inflatable obstacle course, a dunk tank, games, prizes and more.

This fundraiser benefits Rowayton’s own Community Cooperative Nursery School, a 501c3 organization. And a portion of the participants’ fundraising will go to Girls on the Run of Fairfield County, an affiliate of the New Canaan Y.

Participants can easily create their own sponsorship website to enable friends and family to support their race efforts on

Registration fees will we waived for participants raising a minimum of $15 for the 100-yard dash, $20 for the one-mile Family Fun Run and $50 for the 5K race.
