Let your friends and family know that you’re running for United Way in the 35th Annual Stratton Faxon New Haven Road Race on Monday, September 3. All runners who raise $250 or more receive free entry into the Road Race.
The Stratton Faxon New Haven Road Race is a great partner for United Way of Greater New Haven. One reason: It provides FREE entry for all school-age children in New Haven. We appreciate their efforts with New Haven’s youth so much that we’re sponsoring the Kids Run.
Your $250 contribution will:
Support our efforts to help New Haven students get the support they need to succeed in school
Provide early childhood education to kids in need
Help fund job training programs and income stability coaching
Deliver food and nutritional support to struggling families
Join us before the race 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.

About the New Haven Road Race
The Runners World-celebrated Stratton Faxon New Haven Road Race includes 20K, 5K and a half-mile Kids Run (sponsored by United Way of Greater New Haven). All three races kick off on the New Haven Green. The courses are flat and fast. The 20K course winds past Yale University, residential neighborhoods, scenic waterfront areas and large city parks. It has two hills and the rest of the course is flat with few turns.
Race amenities include 13 water stations, all with Gatorade and one with GU Gel, high profile mile markers and digital clocks posted every mile, a t-shirt for all racers and a 35th anniversary commemorative medal to all 20K & 5K finishers.
