Placers is proud to present the 2020 Crush Your Run 5K!

Come run through the streets of Newark with us. Upon completion of your race, Orange Crushes will be waiting for our 21 plus runners back at the famous Deer Park Tavern! 

This is a run/walk so come out regardless if this is your first 5K or if you're a veteran!

Proceeds from this event will be going to Preston's March for Energy.

Preston’s March was created with one goal in mind. With the overwhelming need for adaptive recreational equipment for children with disabilities and the concern for childhood obesity, the Preston’s March mission is to provide adaptive bikes to children with special needs.

Our Goal is to have 20 bikes given away to 20 kids on a waiting list to receive a bike and have them join us in the race! 

For more information about Preston's March please see their website here.

Join us! It warms our hearts every time a child is given a bike designed just for them! We want to share in spreading that joy with as many people as possible! 

Post Race Party at Deer Park Tavern from 9:30am till 11:30am

Each participant will get two drink tickets for Orange Crushes.


**Parking Notification:


There is no parking in the Deer Park parking lot for the event.
