About This Activity

The Annual Run for the River - 5K Run/Walk honoring Dr. Marc Taylor will start & finish at River Glen Health Care Center, 162 South Britain Road, Southbury, CT.  The race course is a fairly flat USATF certified 5k route over scenic country roads during one of the most beautiful times of the year.

All of PRWC’s programs and activities underscore our collective roles as stewards of our environment and promote good habits to keep our watershed and rivers healthy.
