IMG_1478If you’d like to ring in the New Year with a “hot chili brunch” and help out a non-profit organization at the same time, please sign up to walk or run in the People’s United Bank 2015 Chilly Chili Run to benefit the Amity Teen Center.  This year will mark the 18th running of the Race.

The 5K (3.1 miles) Run and Fitness Walk will begin at 10:30 a.m. on New Years Day at the High Plains Community Center, 525 Orange Center Road in Orange.  The registration will be $27.00 for runners and $15.00 for runners 12 and younger, and people doing the Fitness Walk.

You can register online at www.hitekracing.com up until December 26.  Applications also are available at the Orange Park and Recreation office.  Race organizers will have a table set up in the front lobby of the High Plains Community Center on Wednesday, December 31 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for an Early Packet Pickup and Late Registration. 

In addition to serving a “hot chili brunch” to all of the participants, another highlight is the Chilly Chili T-shirt, voted the Favorite among Connecticut Runners.  Everyone who has pre-registered and the first 100 to register on the day of the race will be guaranteed a shirt.  For the past few years the Chilly Chili Run has been the only official 5K race to have three 90+ year old runners register and complete the race. 

All of the proceeds will go to the Amity Teen Center, a 501 c 3 organization that was formed in 1987. The Teen Center is located at 10 Selden Street in Woodbridge.
