About This Activity

(Written Thursday) We are less than three days from our event and have a record pre reg already (close to 500) so we thank you all very much. Registration closes Thursday night at 8pm so that we can download all the info, assign bib numbers, get the shirts ready, setup for pre reg pickup Saturday, and so much more. We are planning for every possibility so yes- for those not familiar with an event like this we DO run in any weather unless the Police have us delay it because of a passing thunderstorm. BUT we all know it is going to be great weather- right!?

Pre reg pickup Saturday 8-12 at the Aquarion Bldg at 600 Lindley St  Bridgeport. Follow the signs to the bibs, shirts & bags! Get to the Arena parking lots early Sunday- it will be crowded!  See you soon.

The Aquarion & the Barnum Festival welcome you to the 3rd edition of a very successful event. Last year we had over 600 people and have room for much more in 2018.

Our courses are terrific for all abilities. They are flat, scenic & fun courses that thousands have run on the last 14 years. The 10k we added two years ago was a 'homerun' as the added distance attracted many who had not been here before. Both courses use the same 5k loop- but the 10k has an out and back section FIRST, thru the Univ of Bridgeport campus, along the water in Seaside Park, then returning to the original course. Both the 10K & 5K races have the most spectacular finish in CT- on the warning track inside the Ballpark at Harbor Yard! 

  1. Active Military and Veterans are FREE!  
  2. Family friendly pricing- Students 18 & Under can take advantage of $10 discount on either the 5K or 10k  

There will be many added features this year for kids and adults including our beer garden (21 & over only) check out our web page for details:
