The St. Luke’s “Run With The Saints” 5K Road Race on Sunday, Nov. 6, will cause short-term road closures on Rings End Road, Harbor Road, Pear Tree Point Road and Long Neck Point Road, Darien police announced.
Drivers in the area can expect short-term delays and detours along the race route. Police will be posted to help traffic and keep the 200 or so runners safe. The event starts at 11:35 a.m. at St. Luke’s Church, and should last about 45 minutes, police said. The walk and run also end at the church.
More About the Race
From St. Luke’s Darien on Facebook:
Join us on Sunday, Nov. 6 for our annual “Run With the Saints” 5K run/walk & picnic following the 10 a.m. service. The 5K race and one-mile walk include a Cuban-style BBQ that has become a joyous parish-wide and community event. Please register by Nov. 5!
This year the event will benefit not only our sister parish in Cuba, but all our other Outreach missions including Person2Person and Homefront.
From the St. Luke’s website:
Following a casual, spirited 10am service on All Saints Sunday, we’ll cross the parking lot to the Anderson Youth and Community Center to lace up and push off for your choice of a 3-mile run, a 1-mile walk or a kids run on a gorgeous route by the water.
(Note: If you’d like to attend just the lunch and festivities, ¡Venga! All are welcome.) Lunch and fun afterwards are our chance to gather with each other and celebrate all we love about our Parish.
Our Faith in Action
Funds raised will send children in Cuba to the National Episcopal Youth Camp next summer (pandemic-permitting), support community meals for the food-insecure and help pay for critical repairs and improvements to the crumbling community center and church at our partner parish in Santa Cruz del Norte.
They don’t want our charity. But they need our help and welcome our friendship. That’s why Saint Luke’s Church is taking a leadership role in delivering both when so many avenues into the country are closed, reaching through the church and deep into the community with the echo effect of our gifts.
