GRR Run Your Mile Virtual Stimulus Run

So nice, let’s do it twice!  The GRR “Run Your Mile” event is back!
May 9th, 2021 is #RunYourMile Day, celebrating the 67th anniversary of Sir Roger Bannister’s historic achievement of being the first human to break the 4 minute mile barrier on May 6, 1954.  We want to bring #RunYourMile to Glastonbury and create an opportunity to give back to our local community! 

Many local establishments depend on consumers to visit them in person as a major portion of their income and sustainability. As COVID-19 has affected all of us over the past year, we want to help our fantastic local businesses and hope that you’ll join us by signing up for a unique virtual event.  

It’s simple.  Sign up.  Run a Mile.  WIN!
Each participant who completes a mile before May 9th will be GUARANTEED a gift card to a “surprise” local establishment that has been supportive of GRR and as a way to help support them. 

100% of the race entry funds collected will be used to buy gift cards to various local establishments who could use a little love to get through tough times.  The gift cards will be redistributed back out to all of those who participate.  Gift cards will range in value, with a minimum of $5 and a maximum of up to $100!

The rules are simple: 

-Each participant will track their own race (you can run, walk, run/walk!). 
-Submit your final result via the Google form – sent to you upon registration – via a photo of your smartwatch, phone app, or even a picture of your treadmill. 
-On Thursday May 13th, we will be hosting an awards happy hour night to celebrate together via Zoom and announce our winners of prizes. 
-All participants will be notified of their prize by Monday May 17th.


The Glastonbury River Runners are collecting donations for a terrific charity, GIRLS ON THE RUN.  For every dollar donated up to $500, GRR will MATCH your contribution!  Simply click the “Donate” button during registration to contribute!
