6th Annual East Farms Spring Ahead 5K

Farmington, CT

Farmington’s East Farms Elementary School PTO is proud to host this community wide event on March 31, 2019. Come inspire children and adults to develop and maintain healthy bodies and minds in the community, while having fun raising funds for the East Farms PTO. Challenge your family, grab a friend, but most of all encourage our youth to get up and get moving by participating in either the 5K, Fun Run or Fitness Walk.

People of all ages and abilities are welcome to attend!

We are expanding our reach into the local community... a percentage of the net race proceeds will be donated to the Farmington Food Pantry. Please visit http://www.farmingtonfoodpantryct.com/home.html to learn more about this local nonprofit organization. 



5K Race starts at 1:00pm.  Fun Run and Fitness Walk begin at 12:15pm.

An award, will be given to the Top 3 Males & Females and the Top Three Males & Females in the following age groups: 10 & U, 11-12, 13-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+

    All participants will receive medals!
