Moonlight Community Gathering and Hike
Moonlight Run


Camp Aya Po - Somers, CT


Join us for a fun run and hike in and around scenic Camp Aya Po under a full winter moon.

The gathering and community hike begins at 7:00 PM, consisting of warm beverages and yummy baked goods, and a short family-friendly hike.

For those who want to join us for the run, the run begins at 8:00 PM and consists of a 2.5 mile course.

Somers community services personnel will be on-site.

The Moonlight Run is not a race, it is a family friendly outdoor event. The group stays together and no one will be left behind.

Runners should dress appropriately for cold temperatures and bring a headlamp. However, with clear skies and particularly if there’s also snow in the ground, there should be sufficient natural light to leave the headlamps off.

People should feel free to bring a baked good to share and warm beverages for after the run. Due to DEP regulations, alcohol is not allowed.
