Any runner who raises or contributes $250 to United Way gets free registration into the race. You can use Facebook and Twitter to ask your friends and family to support your efforts. Meet us before the race at 8 a.m. to tour the New Haven Food Truck, and after the race for a special reception where professional massage therapists will spend a few minutes relaxing your tired muscles.
