On Sunday, April 27, 2014 Lyme Research Alliance will host its 3rd annual Race Against Lyme 5K Walk/Run starting at beautiful Cove Island Park in Stamford, CT (map). This year’s event will start at 10AM.
Race Against Lyme is part of the organization’s commitment to prevention, education, treatment and research activities related to Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. The incidence of Lyme disease continues to rise in our state, especially among our children.
The 5K Walk/Run, timed to help kick off Connecticut’s Lyme Disease Awareness Month, will cover a flat 5K loop on local neighborhood roads, ending back inside the Park (course map). Children will have a chance to race on a loop course of their own inside the park. There will also be a ceremonial one-loop course for Lyme patients.
The event will be held rain or shine.
