Registration for the 36th annual Darien Road Race to take place Sunday, Sept. 13, at Pear Tree Point Beach is now open, the Community Fund of Darien announced.
The 1 p.m. run starts at the beach and includes routes along waterfront scenic roads, and two events, a 10-kilometer run, and 1.5-mile loop, according to the fund.
The race will feature “The Finish Line” tent with music, games, food trucks, a dunk tank, and sponsor booths.
Over the years, the race has raised more than $950,000 to benefit non-profits that support critical needs in Stamford, Norwalk, and Darien.
“We are thrilled to be hosting the 36th running of this beloved Darien race,” said Carrie Bernier, executive director of the Community Fund of Darien. “The Darien Road Race brings together families, athletes, and adults young and old to celebrate the spirit of our community and support a great cause.”
The Community Fund annually gives grant awards to non-profit programs in three categories, youth success, self-sufficiency, and basic needs.
The lead sponsors for this year’s race are UBS, Eagle Point Credit Management, Tooher-Ferraris Insurance Group, and Vineyard Vines.
Participants can now register at www.darienroadrace.org. Entry fees are $40 in advance for adults and $45 on race day, and $15 for those 12 and under.
