Greenwich Beachfront Bushwhack, Max's Mile run slated for Sunday at Camp Simmons

The Beachfront Bushwhack five-mile cross-country run and the Max’s Mile kids run this coming Sunday morning has been relocated from Tod’s Point in Old Greenwich to Camp Simmons on 744 Lake Ave. in Greenwich because of the damage at Tod’s Point caused by Hurricane Sandy. The event will begin at 9:30 a.m.

The early entry fees are $20 for the Beachfront Bushwhack and $15 for Max’s Mile. The entry fees on the day of the race are $25 for the Beachfront Bushwhack and $20 for Max’s Mile. Max’s Mile is in memory of Maxwell Scotti, who passed away at the age of seven in 2009 after a courageous battle against Cancer.

Both events encompass cross-country running for the whole family, including leaps over hay bales and log jumps while running through secret trails and scenic beachfront paths. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Greenwich Land Trust in its challenge of dealing with hundreds of downed trees.

The Beachfront Bushwhack/Max’s Mile event is the ninth event in the Volvo of Stamford Greenwich Cup series of 10 events. The final event of the series is the three-mile Pathways Jingle Bell Jog at 9 a.m. on Dec. 9 at the Threads and Treads sporting goods store on 17 East Putnam Ave.
