The 35th annual Darien Road Race is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 14, at Pear Tree Point Beach and includes a 10K and 1.5-mile Loop.
The race will feature "The Finish Line" tent with entertainment, games, food, pre-race warm-up, post-race cool down and a winners' ceremony.
The Darien Road Race supports The Community Fund of Darien and has raised more than $950,000 to benefit those in need in Stamford, Norwalk and Darien.
"We are excited for the 35th running of this beloved Darien race," said Carrie Bernier, executive director of the Community Fund of Darien. "Over the years, the Darien Road Race has become a true community and family event, for serious and leisure runners alike."
All money raised at the race will benefit nonprofits in Stamford, Norwalk and Darien working to improve the lives of at-risk youth, families in need and those suffering from the effects of poverty, homelessness, hunger, mental illness, substance abuse and domestic violence.
Registration can be done by visiting www.active.com. The fee is $40 in advance and $45 on race day, and $15.00 for children 12 and under. The first 400 registered runners will receive a T-shirt on race day.
