Come run for a great cause! The Get Smart for Wilton 5K presented by our community partners in support of the Wilton Education Foundation is scheduled for Sunday, May 28th, 2023 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 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.
For 2023, you may choose from two race format options, an actual race or a virtual event.
The actual race will be held on Sunday, May 28th at 8:30 AM.
