Alexion Video Contest

Why I Run the Faxon Law New Haven Road Race Video Contest Sponsored by Alexion 

This year, we are adding a fun new contest for our runners! Create a short video explaining why you run the New Haven Road Race, what makes the race special for you, and why you will run this year, even as the event goes virtual. Get creative and have fun!

Submitting the Video 

Post the video on your Instagram or Facebook with the #WHYIRUNFAXONLAW and tag @newhavenroadrace.  Video submissions will be narrowed down to 3-5 finalists by a panel of judges from the New Haven Road Race board. Then you’ll cast the winning votes!

All finalists videos will be featured on the race website and the three top winners, chosen by a public vote on social media will receive a gift card from Woodbridge Running Co.

First Place – $150.00

Second Place – $100.00

Third Place – $50.00
