The Sharon Sunset Trot was born as a way to accommodate members of the Run 169 Towns Society whose members are committed to running a race in each of Connecticut’s 169 towns.

Because many Society members could not run on weekends, Matt Andrulis-Mette, Director of the Sharon Parks and Recreation, started the mid-week event. Matt noted that ” We try to be responsive to what our residents want”.

This year the Sharon Sunset Trot was renamed in honor of beloved Doctor and long-time Sharon resident Evan Rashkoff who passed away unexpectedly this past year. Also in Evan’s honor the proceeds from this year’s race will benefit MediShare, a humanitarian non-profit for which Evan volunteered his talents.
