Hamden, CT — Mayor Curt Balzano Leng is pleased to announce the 5th Annual Hamden Road Race. All proceeds from the race will be donated to the Town of Hamden's Community Services Department Camp Scholarship Fund. This fund helps families with financial need afford the cost of summer camp for their children.
The Hamden Road Race will be held at Town Center Park (2623 Dixwell Avenue) on Saturday, June 3rd, 2017. The event will include a 5k run, a 1k Kids Fun Run, a Health & Wellness Expo, and plenty of activities for the whole family. The 5k road race will start at 9:00 a.m. and will offer runners some rolling hills in the first mile but reward them with a downhill finish. The 1k Kids Fun Run will be held entirely inside Hamden's Town Center Park and will start at 8:30 a.m. The Health & Wellness Expo will be a great opportunity for vendors, sponsors and advertisers to showcase their products and services to a large, healthy-minded audience.
Hamden is continuing its strong partnership with one of the largest event management companies in Connecticut, Team Mossman Events (TME), to organize the race. This year, the Town is seeking to collaborate with local community leaders, organizations, and businesses to promote the Road Race; with the goal of exceeding last year’s total attendance of approximately 2,500 guests and runners.
"The Hamden Road Race is a great day of fun in Town Center Park. It's a family-oriented event with opportunities for everyone to enjoy. With all proceeds going to the Camp Scholarship Fund, it’s truly a day of a community building right in the center of Hamden. There will be lots of activities for kids, free give-aways, and much more," said Matthew Fitch, Town Center Park Commission Chairman.
