(West Haven Campus) – VA Connecticut Healthcare System will host its 3rd Annual Veterans Day Race/Walk on Thursday, Nov. 11 at 10am.  Runners and walkers of all ages and skill levels are encouraged to join us to show your support for the men and women who served our nation in uniform.

The challenging course loops entirely on the grounds of the West Haven campus.  Early registration begins at 8am in the Building 2 rotunda located in front of the cafeteria.  The registration fee is $15 through Oct. 31 and $20 starting Nov. 1 through race day.  Pre-registrants will receive a T-shirt. Shirts will be given as available on race day. Proceeds support the “Indigent Veteran Fund” which provides health and comfort items to homeless veterans.

In 2009, 263 runners/walkers completed the race.  The overall winner was Asher Brandt, 18, of Orange with a time of 16:43.  The first woman to cross the finish line was Leah Sampson, 31, of New Haven in 21:14. 

This year we are co-sponsoring the event with the Rev. James McCarten Assembly #119 of the Knights of Columbus.  Timing services provided courtesy of Vandalay Timing.
