Early registration has opened for the 2018 Get Smart for Wilton 5K, and the early bird gets not just one worm, but two! Runners who register by April 1 receive an early registration discount and a free JoyRide Spin Studio class.

The 2018 Get Smart for Wilton 5K will take place on Sunday, May 27 at 9 a.m., and is held to support of the Wilton Education Foundation. This family-friendly charity event is a chip-timed race on a USATF certified course and attracts runners of all levels, from elite racers to beginners, raising visibility and funds to support the Wilton Public Schools.

The fundraiser’s 5K route starts and finishes at the Wilton High School track, featuring Cider Mill and WHS prominently along the course. Over 300 runners participate each year, making for a high-spirited and celebratory atmosphere. High school athletes join elite local runners, teachers, seniors, and moms and dads running with their kids (strollers welcome) for the run.

Cash prizes are given to the top three male and female runners, and awards go to the top three boys and girls under 13. All race finishers under the age of 13 receive a medal. Pre-registered participants receive a T-shirt. Runners of all ability levels are welcome and proceeds from the race will support enrichment opportunities for Wilton Public School students.

Register online by April 1 to get an early registration discount.
