Get Smart for Wilton 5k Run

May 30, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am

The Get Smart for Wilton 5K in support of the Wilton Education Foundation is scheduled for Sunday, May 30 at 8:30 am. This family-friendly charity event is a chip-timed race on a USATF certified course and attracted runners of all levels, from elite racers to beginners, raising visibility and funds to support the Wilton Public Schools.

A fun, active way to kick off the spring holiday weekend, the event draws everyone from strollers to casual joggers, serious runners to marathoners, all excited to be a part of this superb community-wide event. The energy at the race is palpable, as families, neighbors, and classmates cheer one another on, enjoying the shared camaraderie.

The fundraiser’s 5K route starts and ends at the Wilton High School track, featuring Cider Mill and Wilton High School prominently along the course. About 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 and sometimes pushing jogging strollers, for the run.

Cash prizes are given to the top three male and female runners, and awards go to the top three runners in each division. Pre-registered participants receive a T-shirt. Runners of all ability levels are always welcome and proceeds from the race support enrichment opportunities for Wilton public school students.

For 2021, you may choose from two race format options, an actual race or a virtual event.

The virtual 5K may be run anywhere and anytime between Sunday, May 23, and Sunday, May 30. Event and fee details can be found here. Register here.
