New Year’s Day Chilly Chili Run in Orange

Come on out to ring in the New Year in Orange at the 21st annual Chilly Chili Run, a 5K Road Race and 2 Mile Fitness Walk, followed by a hot chili brunch, to benefit the Amity Teen Center. The race begins at 10:30 a.m., Monday January 1st, at the High Plains Community Center at 525 Orange Center Road.

Our race is known as the “Showcase for 90 year-old legends who Run, Compete, Inspire…”.  We were the first 5K race in the country to have three 90+ year-olds participate and finish the 3.1 mile course.  It has become a tradition on New Year’s Day and this year we will continue to have 3 or 4 of these elite runners coming out to run.

You can register online at www.hitekracing.com until December 26.  Applications are also available at the Orange Park and Recreation office.  On Friday, December29, we will have early packet pickup and late registration in person in the High Plains Community Center lobby from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  On January 1 we will begin the registration at 8:00 a.m. and continue until race time.

Our highlights are:  Being the first 5K race of the New Year in Southern Connecticut, an award-winning long sleeve t-shirt for all of those pre-registered and the first 100 to register on the day of the race.  Plus, we have the BEST post-race buffet ever!

Entry fees before December 16 are $22.00 for runners, $12.00 for runners 12 and under, $12.00 for those doing the 2 Mile Fitness Walk.  Entry fees after December 16 are $27.00 for runners, $15.00 for runners 12 and under and $15.00 for those doing the 2 Mile Fitness Walk.
