  • MILES FOR MARGARITAS // 5.2. // STAMFORD, CT.
    PLACE
    10 Washington Pkwy
    Stratford, CT US 06615
    DESCRIPTION

                Join us on Sunday May 2nd for Little Pub’s Miles for Margaritas, a road race to support CT Waverunners and the #LetHerRun initiative to promote safe running for women. Race proceeds will go to Emerge, a local women’s shelter providing support for survivors of domestic violence and abuse.

    You can run or walk the “chip timed 3+ mile event” OR walk the UNTIMED Margarita Mile option.

    Both courses run through the scenic seaside neighborhood of Lordship, in Stratford.
    Regardless of distance, all participants will receive the same ‘swag’ and be treated to a terrific post-race margarita (soft drinks and non-alcoholic options also available).

    This safe, modified event follows all state guidelines and health department mandates as outlined below.

    EVENT INFORMATION
    The 5k Run/Walk is an individual bib, chip-timed event from your start to your finish. You will receive your ‘net’ time.
    A specially designed T-Shirt will be size guaranteed to entrants registered by April 26. After that “as available” so don’t delay!
    Sealed/pre-wrapped refreshments and fluids after you are done- and MARGARITAS for ages 21 and above only.
    Parking available in lots of the Little Pub, along Washington Pkwy, and along the seawall.

    AWARDS– sorry there are no age group nor overall prizes in 2021

    CHARITY PARTNER – Emerge is located right in our town of Stratford. The mission of Emerge is to inspire women and children, who are homeless survivors of domestic violence, to transform their lives by providing safe housing and support services. Go to http://emerge-inc.org/ for more information and direct donations.
    The CT WaveRunners is a social running club based in Madison, CT welcoming runners of all ages and abilities. As a 501c3 charity, this year we are raising funds for local organizations like Emerge Inc (in Stratford)  http://emerge-inc.org/  to help build awareness for domestic abuse prevention. We are partnering with the Little Pubs and soundRunner locations throughout CT to build awareness and create an environment where women can run without fear through the #LetHerRun women’s safety campaign.
    SAFETY MODIFICATIONS
    COVID CONCERNS– Thanks to the many Departments of Stratford we will be able to present this outdoor event. No building will be used, safe distances and safety protocols will be in place, and State guidelines will be met.
    HOWEVER-we all must be prepared for any change that can happen at any time which may mean a suspension of this live event, and result in a ‘virtual’ run.
    With fixed costs and pre-payment of many items, this means we CANNOT under any conditions REFUND any registration fees. Whether we are live or virtual our commitment to our charity will be maintained. We hope you can support this commitment and join us.

    IMPORTANT DETAIL– There will be a 150 person limit for these events. We encourage everyone to donate any additional amount to Emerge, our charity partner.

    MASKS REQUIRED– We must adhere to all safety protocols so please help us by keeping masks on prior to the start line and immediately after you finish. And of course, please keep a safe distance when you arrive, warm-up, chat with friends, and after you are done.

    MODIFICATIONS FOR A SAFE TIMED START– We will be using a chip-timed, “open start” format FOR THE 3+ MILE EVENT ONLY.  This has been successfully used in various races around the state by our production company. A maximum of five people at the start line leaving at 10-15 second intervals means that a field of 150 can safely clear the start in five minutes or less.

    WE NEED YOUR HELP FOR A SAFE START- If you are truly at a speedy running level (6-7min pace per mile or under) we urge you to be at the start early and ready to go at 8:30 am. This will avoid crowding on the course and help everyone to run more safely. Thanks!
    ON THE COURSE- We ask you to stay safe, announce if you are passing from behind, and not to run in groups.
    THE ONE MILE WALK ONLY UNTIMED EVENT– We ask you to keep a safe distance and please let any runners pass safely by staying to the side of the course as much as possible. MASKS ON AT THE START AND WHEN YOU FINISH (and if possible while you walk, thanks!)
    EVENT COORDINATION
    The Little Pub is proud to have a great team lead by Doug Grabe & Kirsten Comfort. We are excited to have you join us for our first event of this kind.
    MS Running Productions- Marty Schaivone is the race director and coordinator of more than 45 races in CT, including the MADD Dash & Turkey Trot in Stratford, the Bigelow Tea Community Challenge in Fairfield, the Great Pumpkin Classic at Trumbull High School, and many others in Fairfield County.

    The State of Connecticut has developed a rolling 7-day average to consider current infection rate and trends in the community. If cases in Hartford County get too high, or we are seeing significant upward trending, Santa’s Run may be canceled/postponed. In the event of cancelation, FULL refunds will be issued. In the event of postponement, registered runners will have the option to cancel for a FULL refund or transfer their registration to the new date.
