The original PoCo Fest 5K was created by Floyd Parness in 2009. Coach Floyd was a beloved and respected coach in North Branford for over three decades. This will be the 3rd annual Floyd's 5K cross country race & fun run, an event in which we will celebrate the life and spirit that Floyd brought to his athletes & community. These events are a testimony to Floyd and the lasting effect he had on kids and adults alike. The committee dedicates many hours to put this together and is lead by his three children Jennifer, Todd and Dave. A portion of the proceeds will go towards the Floyd Parness Scholarship Fund. Each May, two North Branford seniors will receive the scholarships. These students have run indoor track, outdoor track and/or cross country, the sports in which Floyd coached. They exhibit traits which Floyd felt so strongly about including heart, dedication and perseverance.
