The Pequot Runners are the proud organization behind the acclaimed Thanksgiving Day 5 Mile Road Race and 2.6 mile walk through Connecticut’s Gold Coast. The race has become a holiday tradition throughout the region.

We’re going virtual this year.  The town of Fairfield has prohibited all races until at least 2021, so to keep the tradition alive and help us continue to donate race proceeds to local charities such  as Wakeman Boys/Girls Club, Domestic Violence Crisis Center, Junior Achievement, Fairfield  Museum, Pequot Library, Westport EMS and more.  This means you can run 5 miles anywhere  you choose between November 21 and noon on November 26.  You can post your time and be  listed in the overall standings...go to our website for registration information...  Neck gaiters will be mailed to all who register immediately after the race. We ask that you run  your 5 miles prior to Thanksgiving Day since there will be no road markings on the usual race  course nor will there be police at the intersections. Also, don’t forget that the Pequot Running Club has organized runs every Tuesday (from either  Compo Beach or Longshore Park) and Thursday (from ASF Sports & Outdoors) evening and on  Sunday morning from the Wakeman Boys/Girls Club.  For more information about the club  email:
