2021 Fischang-Cicchetti Road Race

November 16, 2021

When: November 21, 2020

Time: 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM


Join us for this year's Fischang-Cicchetti Memorial Road Race - a 5-mile and 5K pre-Thanksgiving Sunday-morning classic favorite of runners all over Connecticut, taking over the streets of Waterbury for the 47TH YEAR IN A ROW!!! 

We are so excited to be holding this race again in 2021. This year, we'll be bringing back the 5K option for those missing that shorter distance!  Please register online, and register early! The first 200 registrants will be receiving t-shirts. Pre-race packet pick-up will be strongly recommended and can be done at the Welcome Center of the Greater Waterbury YMCA on Friday, November 19, from 5-7 pm, or Saturday, November 20, from 11 am-3 pm.  Race morning check-in will be available for those who are unable to pick up on Friday or Saturday. 

We will not be assigning start waves this year, so you will not need to provide an estimated race time when you register.  We will encourage you to line up according to speed, with faster runners towards the front and slower runners and walkers towards the back.  Face coverings will not be required. We do encourage racers to maintain a safe social distance throughout their five mile/5K journey.   CLICK HERE to view this year's course map. 5K runners will have a turnaround along the same route. 

There will be awards for the top 3 males & females overall and top 3 males & females in each division (no cash prizes this year).  There will not be an awards ceremony after the race, but awards can be picked up at the Greater Waterbury YMCA Front Desk during the week, or they will be mailed. 

The Greater Waterbury YMCA building will be open for restroom use only on race morning unless there is inclement weather (rain, snow, or below-freezing temperatures), in which case the gymnasium will be open and available for runners to stay warm and dry before the race.  Race participants will be asked to wear masks while inside the building.  The Race Committee reserves the right to update any requirements to comply with current public health guidance and YMCA policies. If you register, please understand that you are committing to following all required procedures throughout the event.  Thanks for your patience and cooperation in helping us make sure this event can happen safely.

We hope to see you on November 21, 2021, for the 47th consecutive running of the Fischang-Cicchetti Memorial Road Race!
