Covid-19 has been a dark cloud hanging over all of us for more than a year.  Thanks to devoted scientists and other public health leaders, and this community's commitment to responsible behaviors, there is hope that we can emerge from the pandemic.  Come join us for an outdoor celebration of our community's road to recovery from Covid-19.  The festivities will start with a kids 0.5 mile fun run at 12:30pm, followed by a 2 mile walk at 12:45pm, and then the premier event: a USATF sanctioned live 5km road race on our new certified course at 1:00pm in beautiful Bernardsville, NJ. 

The live race will comply with all then-applicable New Jersey Executive Orders and New Jersey Department of Health and CDC guidelines in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.  See the Covid-19 Protocols tab for more details.

The live race includes a supersoft commemorative t-shirt for those who register for the live 2 mile walk or 5K run by May 16th.  Shirts will be available on a first come first serve basis for those who register after May 16th.  See The Shirt tab for a picture and a link to a size chart.

Online registration is open through noon on Friday May 21st.  There will be in-person race day paper registration from 11:30am-12:15pm (bring cash).

There will be post-race snacks and refreshments, including a visit from the Kona Ice Truck for the runners as they finish! 

All proceeds to benefit Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish and the School of Saint Elizabeth.
