31st Annual Jurale Memorial Tradition Run

The City of Meriden and the Record-Journal present the 31st
Annual Bernie Jurale Memorial Tradition Run at Hubbard Park.
Registration begins at 9:30am in the Hubbard Park
maintenance facility with the run to follow at 10:30am.

The Tradition Run has a long history of being a non-competitive
event. Contestants enjoy competing against the challenge of the
Hanging Hills rather than the clock. The 3.1 mile course begins
in the park and climbs an elevation of over 700 feet to its finish
at Castle Craig (tower/mountain peak). There is no fee to enter.

Participants will receive certificates, patches and special gifts.
In addition, several prizes will be awarded and support services
will be offered to runners. Come enjoy Meriden's premier run!
