After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone our THIRD ANNUAL APPLE RUN, until 2021, in light of the current Coronavirus Pandemic. Hosted by St Catherine of Siena in Trumbull, CT, the race is a terrific way to start off “Apple Season” in Connecticut. We’ll see you in 2021!
We offer a 5K run (or walk) event which will be Computer Timed. Our shorter “Walk Only” will NOT be timed. The Candy Apple Kids Run for 3rd grade & under is a non competitive, un-timed fun run for all abilities!
For those that can’t be with us but want to support our event we will have a Virtual Apple Run & Walk that you can enjoy from anywhere and at anytime!
All proceeds will benefit St. Catherine of Siena school & its students.
Our 5k course will be in the Nichols area of Trumbull- very similar to the well known “Jingle Bell Run” that takes place on the first Saturday in December. Expect some rolling hills and great scenery along the way.
Here’s the link to our Police Approved course for the 5K- https://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=7293270
(courses are always subject to slight changes after official measuring is finished)
Our shorter walk course will start at the same time & place but have a cutoff thru the neighborhood onto Erwin Rd so you can get back to the festivities even faster!
For the kids run we encourage all abilities. We will be watching the pre-registration to determine if we will have two seperate runs, at varying distances, if we see a wide age range. We do limit the kids to 3rd grade and under, please.
