Strut with Mutts for Norwalk River Valley Trail

The Norwalk River Valley Trail’s (NRVT) second annual Mutt Strut Challenge will be on May 18 from 9am to noon. The fun event for all ages includes bandanas and treats for the dogs, selfies, trophies, medals, prizes and more. You may participate individually, start a team or join an existing team. Teams who raise the most money will receive a trophy, and everyone who completes the 1-mile hike will be entered to win a grand prize.

You will be strutting your mutts on the NRVT at these two starting locations:

• Norwalk - The Lockwood-Mathews parking lot at the rear of the Pine Island Historic Cemetery. The Norwalk Mutt Strut will go from Lockwood-Mathews to the Maritime Aquarium and back—about 20 minutes each way.

• Wilton - The commuter parking lot at Wolfpit Road and Route 7. The Wilton Mutt Strut will go from the commuter parking lot to Sharp Hill Road and back—about 30 minutes each way.

The Norwalk River Valley Trail will be a 35-mile, multi-use trail that will run from Norwalk to Danbury. All proceeds from the Mutt Strut will go toward extending the trail to link the five towns of Norwalk, Wilton, Ridgefield, Redding and Danbury.

Registration is $30 for families or per person.
