The Glenholme School, a boarding and day school for students with high functioning autism spectrum disorders and various social, emotional and learning differences in Washington, Connecticut is proud to announce its third annual 5K Run for Autism planned for November.
This course is every runner’s, walker's and dog-lover's dream. (Yes, it's true! Dogs are welcome to run, too.)

Pre-race registration is $20 and race day registration is $25. Fido fee is $10 on race day. Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. on race day and the first 100 registrants will receive a high quality athletic t-shirt.
The location in Steep Rock Preserve offers a flat and fast, out-and-back route set on a narrow dirt road in one of the most scenic spots along the Shepaug River.
Prizes will be awarded in all divisions including the top three registered dogs and special awards will be given to the top male and female finishers.
