9th Annual MarcUS for Change 5K Walk & Run
September 20 – 25; Location: Virtual September 26 (Classic); Location: Mill River Park
It’s been nine years since the McInerney family partnered with the Stamford Public Education Foundation for the first annual 5K run/walk inspired by the life and memory of Marcus Dixon McInerney, a Stamford High School graduate.
The world is a different place and our community dynamics have changed, but we all still need to support each other. This year, the 9th Annual MarcUS for Change 5K Walk & Run will offer two ways to participate — a virtual walk/run with a team and a course of your choice, or our in-person race taking place at Mill River Park on September 26, 2021.
Rain or shine. This event is FREE!
