THE BOOGIE IS BACK!
After a one-year pandemic pause, the Bunny Boogie returns, this year in a new location – Rowayton’s Bayley Beach.
We’re offering a “hybrid” format this year where participants can participate “virtually” or join us in-person on race day. Virtual participants can run or walk the beautiful waterfront course at their own leisure any time in September and will receive the Greens Ledge Restoration t-shirt and can submit their times to the website.
Extra safety precautions will be taken this year – including the option to participate virtually – to ensure a safe and fun event, consistent the guidance from the City of Norwalk and the State of Connecticut and with the best-practices of other recent charity run/walk events. Full safety procedures will be sent to race-day participants. Virtual participants will be emailed a map of the course, the process to submit times, and t-shirt pick up times/locations.
Please note, in order to maintain safe protocols the field will be limited to 150 runners – register early to avoid being shut out, and to take advantage of lower Early Bird prices.
In keeping with state guidelines for road races there will be NO IN PERSON REGISTRATION ON RACE DAY. Online registration will remain open until the start time; runners can register at home before arriving at the race site or on their phones there, then check in for their bib and T-shirt. Once on site, everyone is required to wear a mask when they are not physically running (warming up, racing, cooling down).
In addition, we will utilize a “rolling start” with small groups of runners crossing the start mats to enable everyone to more easily maintain social distance. After you finish, please keep moving past the line and do not congregate in large groups. Feel free to enjoy the view over the Sound – there is plenty of room on the beach to maintain social distance. There will be no post-race awards ceremony.
