The Community Fund of Darien

The Darien Road Race is a beloved Darien community event celebrating its 37th year. There is a scenic 10k and a 1.5 mile “loop” around the picturesque Pear Tree Point golden coastline. The Darien Road Race attracts over 500 runners, their family and friends for a day of fun, music, food and a celebration of community.

The Darien Road Race proudly supports The Community Fund of Darien and its mission to enhance the quality of life for our neighbors in Darien, Stamford and Norwalk. The Community Fund of Darien is about people helping people, locally changing lives with investments of time, expertise and financial support.
We depend on individual donations and business sponsorships for support. Since 1979, the race has raised more than $950,000 benefitting local nonprofits in Darien, Norwalk and Stamford working to improve the lives of at-risk youth, families in need and those suffering from the effects of poverty, homelessness, hunger, mental illness, substance abuse, domestic violence, and more. Please run for a cause and help us raise money to support our neighbors in need.
