Special Olympics Race

Suffield’s cross country program hosted the 7th annual Special Olympics/Suffield Academy XC race on September 17. The event included both 5K and 2.5K/3K runs on Suffield Academy’s cross country course. Each year, the day is an inspiring tribute to our participating runners and Special Olympics athletes, who run alongside each other in this celebration of the inclusiveness of sport.

Attendee Damon Li ’23 said, “I believe the event was exciting and fruitful—one of the most meaningful meets I’ve ever run in!” Colin Walsh ’24 said, “It was amazing seeing the community come together to run with the athletes. Everyone was cheering and it showed how special this community is.”
