The New Canaan YMCA is proud to present the Grit ‘N Wit Obstacle Dash 5k & Kids Run on Sunday, October 22 in Waveny Park, New Canaan!  Enjoy a fun day outside with friends and family while supporting a great cause! All proceeds support the summer camp financial assistance program at the Y.
The Kids Run begins at 12:00 PM and is a short run with kid-friendly obstacles appropriate for ages 5-9. All kids obstacles can be completed as individuals but parents are welcome to help.
The 5k obstacle dash begins at 12:30 PM and is open to ages 10+ and is the first obstacle course where brain meets brawn! You and your teammates will be working together to take on 16 physical obstacles and mental challenges throughout Waveny Park! Put together a team (we recommend 4 indivdiuals - though more or less is fine) and simply sign-up on-line (either individually or together). When you sign up, be sure to put in your team name.

This event is designed to be fun so you can go as fast or as slow as you want. If a physical challenge seems too daunting, feel free to go around it. For those teams that are looking to compete, we will be keeping track of time and awarding medals to the winning teams. 

On-line registration closes at 10 p.m. on Saturday, October 21st. You can still register at the event though prices increase to $65 for adults (from $55), $40 for individuals ages 10-17 (from $30) $150 for families - 2 adults/2 youth (from $125) and $25 for kids (from $20). If you do register online, please print off your ticket confirmation and bring it to the event. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone on the 22nd! Feel free to contact Davie Cedela with any questions: or by phone at (203) 920-1641. For any questions regarding registration, please contact James Moher at
