Lace them up runners for this local 5k. Here's all the information you'll need to get in on this race, and yes there will be chili too.

I totally admire the dedication of runners. Especially when I see them out doing their thing in the cold Winter weather. By the way, I do that admiring from the warmth of my car and heated seats! But if you love the slap, slap of your sneakers on the pavement any time of year, then there's a 5K coming up on Feb. 18th in Danbury that you might want to check out.

The 6th Annual Big "Chili" 5k Run is sponsored by the Danbury Westerners and the Danbury Sports Dome. For all the information you need like start time, directions, entry fee, and more go online to

While you can register on race day it will cost you more. To get the pre - registration price of $25 ( which is good until Feb. 15, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. EST ) go to

After Feb.15th, and including race day, Feb.18th the entry fee goes up to $30. It's important to note that you can walk the race too.

I'll be the one sitting in the car staying warm while I admire your tenacity.
