SECURITY We thank the town of Fairfield and specifically the Fairfield Police Department for assisting us in this endeavor. Fairfield Police will be providing extra officers, both in uniform and civilian clothes in and around the venue. As well, the police will provide EOD dogs before and during the race. These dogs are trained to detect “suspicious” articles.

As an important security measure, no bags/backpacks will be permitted inside the building. There will be a tent on the field where you will be able to leave your bag at you own risk. Please do not leave valuables in your bags/backpacks.

We appreciate your continued support of our event and we thank you for your patience and understanding.
