BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County will host its 19th Annual 5K Run for Home and Work Boot Challenge on Saturday, Oct. 8, at Seaside Park in Bridgeport.

The fast and flat USATF-certified course makes this 5K Run the perfect opportunity for serious runners to set qualifying personal records, according to a release from Habitat CFC.

Walkers are welcome and will enjoy views of the Long Island Sound, the release said.
