Our facilities and grounds provide not only a place for Ridgefield’s students to participate in our award-winning youth programming, but will also be a place for the community to come together to enjoy the 41st year of this race, which directly relates to one of our core values for sports, fitness and recreation,” says Mike Flynn, BGCR’s Executive Director.
