About This Activity

19th Annual Run With the Dolphins and Inaugural DolphinFest

Join us for the Newington Elementary School 5K Run/Walk, Fun Run, and Festival! Our race this year will be run in memory of the late Tommy Henry, a Newington teacher and avid runner and participant in the Summerville fitness community. There will be opportunities at the race and festival to support Tommy's family financially.
This year, in addition to our annual 5K and 1 Mile Kids Fun Run, we'll have inaugural DolphinFest with vendor booths, jump castles, and food trucks.
All proceeds for this event go to support the Newington Elementary School PTA and programs for Newington Elementary School.
If you wish to sponsor this event or have a booth at the festival, please contact us at
