Evan Rashkoff, 1st Annual Sharon Sunset Trot

The Evan Rashkoff 1st Annual Sharon Sunset Trot , sponsored by the Sharon Parks and Recreation, will be held on Thursday, July 19, 2018 at the Sharon Town Beach in Sharon, CT.

The fee for entry is $25 for adults, and children 12 and under run free. The fee includes fun awards and after-race refreshments. No pre-registration is required. Free T shirt to all registrants.

The 4.1 mile race begins and at the Town Beach, travels along Mudge Pond Road to Long Pond Road then to Valley Road to Mudge Town Road before ending up back at the Town Beach.

The schedule for race day is as follows:

4:30 – 6:30 pm Registration

6:30 pm  Race begins.

Fun awards and refreshments after the race.

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.
