Inaugural "Stags Run for Stags" Virtual Race, Nov. 20–22

Fairfield University’s Student Alumni Association is hosting a virtual race that can be done anytime and anywhere during race weekend, to benefit current Stag students.

The Fairfield University Student Alumni Association will host the inaugural “Stags Run for Stags” Virtual Race for alumni, parents, students, friends, and fans of Fairfield! This fun run (or walk) can be done anytime, anywhere, and in any way over race weekend: Friday, November 20 through Sunday, November 22.

Race registration is $20 for alumni, parents, friends, and faculty/staff, and $15 for current students. A portion of the registration fee will go to benefit a Stags for Stags designation of each racer’s choice to support the current critical needs of Fairfield students. All racers will receive a limited-edition tie-dye Fairfield University face mask and a non-personalized digital race bib to commemorate their run.

Interested race participants can sign up online and choose one of the following race options:  

  • “5.0 K” - In honor of the 50th Anniversary of Women at Fairfield University; approx. 3.1 miles
  • “10.73 K” - In recognition of Fairfield’s home on 1073 North Benson Road; approx. 6.7 miles
  • “Stag Challenge” - A combination of both races for a total of approximately 9.8 miles

During race weekend, participants will map their route with apps such as Map My RunUSATF - America's Running Routes, or WalkJogRun. Then, once racers have completed their miles, they can share their race results and stories with Fairfield on Instagram by tagging @fairfieldualumni and @fairfieldsaa using #StagsRunforStags, or send your results via email to alumni@fairfield.edu. Various social media contests will take place throughout the weekend, so make sure to follow these accounts as well after registering.

For more information about this weekend event, please visit fairield.edu/StagsRunForStags, or contact the Office of Alumni Relations at (203) 254-4280 or alumni@fairfield.edu.
