MarcUS for Change 5K Walk & Run

at Mill River Park on October 23, 2022

Thank you to everyone who came out for a day of fitness and fall fun as we celebrated our 10º Aniversario de MarcUS for Change 5K Walk & Run.  We truly appreciate each and every 5K participant, volunteer, sponsor, and SPEF teammate who helped make this year’s event a resounding success!

The 5K kicked off on Mill River Street to the sound of a blaring air horn. Our quickest runners, both members of Stamford High’s Cross-Country team, took home the top honors:  Denis Proskuryakov, ran the 3.1 miles in just 17 minutes and 8 seconds, and Eleanor Fox followed closely behind at just 21 minutes and 31 seconds.

The link to the full results can be found here.
