Miles for Margaritas and Cinco de Mama


2nd Annual Stratford Little Pub’s 5k or Margarita Mile Run/Walk

Sunday May 1st
To Benefit Stratford’s Connecticut Audubon and Local Charities

Join Stratford’s Little Pub Sunday May 1st for the 2nd Annual Stratford Little Pub’s Miles for Margaritas & Cinco de Mama 5k. This year we combined two events to produce an early celebration of both Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s Day!

You can run or walk the “chip timed” 3+ mile event or walk the UNTIMED Margarita Mile option.  Both courses run through the scenic seaside neighborhood of Lordship, in Stratford.

Regardless of distance, all participants will receive the same ‘swag’ and be treated to a terrific post-race Margarita (soft drinks and non-alcoholic options also available).

All 5k distance, timed participants are eligible for awards & prizes in their age groups.  The untimed walk does not include any awards.

This safe, modified event follows all state guidelines and health department mandates.

Event Information
The 5k Run/Walk is an individual bib, chip-timed event from your start to your finish. You will receive your ‘net’ time.

A specially designed T-Shirt will be size guaranteed to entrants registered by midnight April 22.  After that it’s “as available” so don’t delay!

Snacks, fruit, refreshments and fluids after you are done- and MARGARITAS for ages 21 and above only. ID NEEDED!  We will also be serving Stratford’s own award winning Athletic Brew, nonalcoholic craft brew.

Parking is available in lots of the Little Pub, along Washington Pkwy, and along the seawall.  PLEASE arrive early and try to carpool. This is a residential area- parking along the seawall may fill up early with non-event cars.

Registration Is Limited To 200

Sign up now, before it’s too late. Don’t get shut out!  Online registration closes once we are full – It will remain open on Race Day until 15 minutes before the start if we are not full.

Safety Modifications

Thanks to the many Stratford Departments we will be able to present this outdoor event. Safe distances and safety protocols will be in place, and State/Town guidelines will be met.

With fixed costs and pre-payment of many items, this means we CANNOT under any conditions REFUND any registration fees. Whether we are live or virtual our commitment to our charity will be maintained. We hope you can support this commitment and join us.

We will be using a chip-timed start for the 5k event only.  This has been successfully used in various races around the state by our production company.  If you are truly at a speedy running level (6-7 minute pace per mile or under) we urge you to be at the start early and ready to go at the front 8:30 am. This will avoid crowding on the course and help everyone to run more safely. Thanks!On the course we ask you to stay safe, announce if you are passing from behind, and not to run in groups.

The One Mile Walk Only is an untimed event.  We ask you to keep a safe distance and please let any runners pass safely by staying to the side of the course as much as possible.
