The 2021 Newington Library 5K Challenge Road Race that was held on October 3, 2021 was a success. Runners/walkers enjoyed a great community event, beautiful running weather.
Thank you to our main sponsor Tilcon Connecticut and all our other race sponsors, food sponsors and businesses and organizations that donated to the race. With out their support we would not be able to have this annual library fundraiser.
A special thank you to Marathon Champion, former Newington resident and life long runner Bill Rodgers for running the race and supporting the library.
