This race — formerly known as the Bradley International Road Race — is operated by the Windsor Locks Lions Club every year on the last Saturday in March. In 2018, the proceeds will benefit Channel 3 Kids Camp, Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation, and Windsor Locks Lions Charities, Inc., a charitable foundation supporting people in need in our local communities.
The Windsor Locks Lions Club is a member of The International Association of Lions Clubs — or Lions Clubs International — the largest worldwide secular service organization, with 1.4 million men and women serving their local communities. The Lions of Windsor Locks have served the town since 1942, and the club has provided ambulance services to the town since 1944. Among many other services, we provide eyeglasses to folks in need, food baskets for families at the holidays, residential handicap access ramps for residents with temporary and permanent needs, and vision screening clinics in the local schools. The club meets every first and third Thursday at the Skyline Restaurant on Ella Grasso Turnpike. Dinner is at 6:30 and all are welcome to attend.
