About This Activity

On Sunday, Nov. 8, the Greater New Haven Rotaract Club will hold its fourth annual 5k Road Race & Fun Run. This year, for the first time, the road race will benefit the Tessa Marie Fund.

The Tessa Marie memorial fund helps underprivileged children, and children in need of medical care and attention. As a club we feel that every child deserves the chance for a healthy and active life.  Some children lack these opportunities — we want to help them.

A majority of the 5K and fun run proceeds will benefit the fund.

Additionally, a portion of proceeds from this event will go towards a donation to the local food bank. We will be collecting non-perishable at the race for the North Haven Food Bank.

Event details and schedule

The road race and fun run take place on neighborhood streets around the North Haven High School. The roads are mostly flat, with no major hills.

Due to consturction at the North Haven Middle School, where this race has traditionally been held, the 2015 race will begin and end at the High School, next door.

Regsitration begins at 8 a.m. The 1-mile fun run begins at 9:30 a.m. The road race kicks off at 10 a.m.

Ample free parking is available onsite in the school parking lot.

After the race, The North Haven Rotary Club will hold its annual pancake breakfast onsite in the North Haven Middle School cafeteria.
