The Robert J. Lynes Memorial Road Race is a 5K run/walk race with a kids Fun Run just before. It is being held in memory of Bobby Lynes who was a lifelong resident of Meriden.

In high school Bob ran on the track team at Orville H. Platt High School. Throughout his life he volunteered in Meriden for many different organizations such as:

  • The Meriden Daffodil Festival

  • The Meriden Men's Softball League

  • The Meriden Girls Softball League

  • The Meriden Soccer League

  • Boy Scout Troop 43

  • Castle Craig Playhouse

  • Francis T. Maloney High School Props and Paints

  • The Francis T. Maloney Marching Band Pit Crew

Monetary donations and proceeds from this road race will go into The Robert J. Lynes Memorial Fund for the preservation and beautification of Hubbard Park. We hope you can join us in honoring him and his dedication to the city and park that he loved, Meriden’s beautiful Hubbard Park.
