Little Britches Virtual 5K Walk/Run

This event has run for the past seven years in the beautiful town of Bridgewater, allowing runners to enjoy a day of racing and fun activities for participants of all ages. Little Britches has decided that this year’s 5K Walk/Run will be a virtual event due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Registration for this event is available here. The first 100 registered participants will receive a registration packet with a race t-shirt & a race bib. We are asking all participants to share pictures from wherever you are walking/running the day of the event and tag Little Britches in your social media posts. We also encourage participants to create a fundraising page on

Founded in 1979 by Peg Sweeney and Betty Lou McColgin, Little Britches aims to change the lives of people with disabilities using the movement of the horse. Our riders have a variety of disabilities, including autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit disorder, Downs syndrome, cerebral palsy, dyspraxia, oppositional defiance, visual impairment and auditory impairment. Some riders are wheelchair-bound and experience independence for the first time on the backs of our horses. Little Britches provides an opportunity for our students to participate in a sport; they are no longer spectators sitting on the sidelines. They are riders in the center of the ring — they become sports stars.
