Go Far Go Fast Road Race June 16th

The third annual Go Far Go Fast Road Race will take place at the Durham Fairgrounds on June 16th.  Children of all ages are invited.  Races include a tot race for ages 4 and under,  1/2 mile for ages 6 and under,  1 mile for children up to 6th grade, a 2 mile for children up to 6th grade, and a 2 mile for grades 7-12.  

Each finisher receives a t-shirt and a finisher metal.  Winners in age categories earn trophies.  Race will be held rain or shine.  See www.wix.com/jschulten/gofar for registration information.  Register by June 1 for guaranteed t-shirt.  Last year we had 350 children ages 2 to 17 participating in our event.  We need help from our community to make this event a success. If you would like to volunteer or help sponsor the race, please contact Go Far at gofarchildren@gmail.com.  All proceeds from the race will pay for the items that we need to put on the race and to run the Go Far programs in District 13 schools all year long. 

Go Far is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide a non-competitive daily fitness and wellness program that encourages healthy exercise to children in Regional District 13, the towns of Durham and Middlefield, CT.  Our program currently runs at elementary and middle schools (grades 1-6).  In these schools, students run or walk laps and have their mileage recorded by a mentoring adult. Students are given small prizes (like Legos on a necklace, or charms) every five miles and a t-shirt at 26.2 miles. Children benefit and learn about the importance of achieving a long term goal through our structured program.
