Event description
Run for the Fallen CT honors the 65 fallen CT service members lost in Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom and other post-9/11 conflicts.

About this Event

Run for the Fallen CT is dedicated to honoring Connecticut’s fallen heroes through public events and community outreach. It also serves as a larger reflection of all United States service men and women lost in all conflicts to ensure our heroes are never forgotten.

The annual memorial group run is an apolitical remembrance gathering in support of the families, friends, and comrades of service members lost in Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom and other post-9/11 conflicts.

This is a FREE EVENT and is open to the public. The remembrance ceremony will begin at 2:30pm and we encourage all visitors and participants to attend.

This is group run and not a timed race. Each kilometer of the run is dedicated to a fallen service member. The first lap kicks off at 6AM and each subsequent lap will start at the top of each hour until 2PM. Laps are 8km (5mi) each and range between a 10-11min/mile pace. There is a 5K segment (also a group run) on the last lap. Road markers with pictures of each fallen service member will be placed every kilometer. Runners will stop for a brief moment of silence at each marker. Families and friends of the fallen may be present to greet the runners. For more information, please see our website, www.runforthefallenct.org.
