5th Annual Arc Run 2020! 5K/10K Walk or Run

September 26, 2020 @ 9:15 am


NEW protocols for our race this year due to COVID-19:
Just as with our programming, we have adapted this year’s Arc Run, in accordance with CT State Guidelines, to keep you all safe and socially distanced during our onsite Arc Run.

Arc Run 2020 offers 4 great ways to participate and support MidState Arc!

Runners/Walkers can choose to run 5K or 10K ONSITE or VIRTUALLY.

ONSITE participants will be officially timed on our USA Track & Field (USATF) certified course that will begin and end at 200 Research Parkway, Meriden, CT.

VIRTUAL participants can run/walk in your own neighborhood or wherever you prefer. You should submit times by midnight Sept 26 using the following online form

DEADLINE to register: Friday, 9/25/20 at 9pm

All proceeds will help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities lead more independent and fulfilling lives.

  • Runners will maintain social distancing of 6 ft apart.
  • Faster runners (under 24 minutes for the 5k) will go out in the first group.
