Get Smart for Wilton 5K

Overview

The Get Smart for Wilton 5K 2016 presented by Blue Buffalo and other community partners in support of the Wilton Education Foundation was held on Sunday, May 29th. This family-friendly charity event was 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 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.

SkirtZ guides the organization of the event, with many other volunteers, from the school superintendent to WEF board members to people contributing their time and cheering on the runners. Many local businesses contribute to the 5K, and are recognized on the race T-shirt and other materials each year.
