The Fairfax Egg Run Goes Virtual!

As we are unable to gather for an event like this in person right now, we’re incredibly excited to bring the Egg Run to YOU!

This virtual race will take place between August 1st and August 9th.

We’re excited to offer a fantastic prize package to all who finish their event, including a special 2020 Egg Run T-Shirt, a certificate for a fantastic made-to-order omelet at a local establishment, a finisher medal, and more!

August 1st – 9th, 2020

What does my participation support?

The Egg Run has always been a great fundraiser for community projects in Fairfax. It helped build a playground, our recreational fields, the community recreation path, and now it’s supporting the development of our Community Center!

All proceeds from this event help fund improvements to bring this building on Main Street up to compliance for large public assembly. We are closer than ever before to achieving the collective vision of a multi-generational community space in Fairfax, and that’s why we’re calling on you to help us clear the last few hurdles!

Even while we’re apart, there’s a great benefit to the entire community in having a space like this to organize meal distribution, provide shelter in an emergency, or look to as a beacon of hope for a time when we can come back together. 

Take your support a step further with fundraising!

This year we’ve enabled fundraising for all participants of the Egg Run – any additional contributions to our goal are encouraged and will be recognized with a small additional gift sent out with your Egg Run swag!

We are offering fantastic prizes to the top 3 fundraisers!

1. The Inner Chef package at The Essex, Vermont’s luxury culinary resort & spa

  • Two nights’ accommodations
  • One Cook Academy Class (per person) 
  • $50 (per person) credit toward dinner at Junction (reservations required)
  • Breakfast at The Tavern (up to $16 value per person daily)

2. A breath-taking helicopter flight tour for two from Mansfield Heliflight

3. A two night stay at The Essex for two, breakfast included – sponsored by Bia Diagnostics
