The Danbury Westerners are pleased to announce that the 4th Annual Danbury Westerners Big Chili 5K is set for Sunday, February 21 at 10:00AM at the Danbury Sports Dome on 25 Shelter Rock Road in Danbury. The race is part of the Chili Winter Warm Up which is a family festival and chili cook-off also held at the Danbury Sports Dome.
The course is fast and flat, leaving from the Danbury Sports Dome, rolling into Bethel and back to the Dome. Runners will be treated with refreshments in the Dome following the race including a hot bowl of chili. Age group awards will be presented in seven different categories and t-shirts will be awarded to the first 150 registrants.
The adult course race starts at 10 a.m. and the entry fee is $25 through February 18, 2016; the fee goes up to $30 after and up to the day of the race.
There will also be two free Kids Runs inside the Dome starting at 9:15 a.m. The kids race will consist of ages 5 - 8 with one lap and ages 9-12 two laps around the indoor track. There is no entry fee, and all registered children will receive a free sports pack while the supplies last.
This is a great event where families can enjoy a nice run on a relatively flat course, and then warm up inside the Sports Dome with some chili. Register now at
