Julia's Run Saturday April 30, 2022 10:00 am

We are excited to bring the run in memory of Julia back to you and the children it benefits. Marty Schaivone, our Run Director, has secured a new venue and designed the main 5 km course and other events.

PLACE  The start line is at Edgewood Skate Park, New Haven, CT 06511. The beautiful and peaceful Edgewood Park is just off Whalley Ave in the Westville section of New Haven. This scenic park was designed in 1910 by Frederick Law Olmstead who also designed NYC Central Park. The course goes by West River and the ponds within the park borders. The course maps will be posted soon.

  • FREE KIDS FUN RUN - 9:40AM  All children finishing will receive a medal! Kids run will be untimed. It  covers about 1/4 mile. We are encouraging 8-year old and younger. Parents/guardians can accompany their children.

VIRTUAL RUNS 2020 and 2021

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Julia's Run for Children has been canceled for 2020. Mike Kavey, long time friend and participant of Julia's Runs, proposed we hold local, individual races on April 5. If you can do so at a safe distance from other people, we encourage that you run 5K on April 5 on your own. Please share photos and stories!
Stay Safe!
