and have "The Best Day EVER!" ~ Emil "Moe" Renzullo, Jr.
Miles for Moe is an event that is growing and changing every year! This year's event will be our 4th family friendly 5K road race; for runners and walkers alike (no bike ride or kids fun run), to be held rain or shine!
The Harvest Fest 5K will start and finish at Camp MOE 1145 Brandy Hill, Torrington, CT and will consist of a moderately hilly, out-and-back route on both paved and gravel terrain. The rural country this course takes runners through, will offer beautiful fall foliage views in September!
Runners and walkers will be greeted at the finish line by special guest Dan Lovallo announcing each individuals name and their personal points (i.e. a first 5K, personal best time, running for, in memory of, ect). Harvest Fest 5K will be timed by Fast Track Timing.
The Harvest Fest 5K will start at 11:00am.
Day-of registration will be available from 9:30am to 10:45am.
Established in memory of Emil "Moe" Renzullo, Jr., a very special boy who passed away from Leukemia in 2010. The Miles 4 Moe Foundation Fund is dedicated to raising funds to benefit our local children. While most of the monies raised goes to Moe's beloved camp, Camp MOE, The Miles 4 Moe Foundation Fund reserves funds to give back to our community. Every year we strive to do more for our children! We hope that you will come and be a part of what Moe would say is "the best day EVER!"
