The SPEAK™ 5K is an annual run/walk hosted by Safe+Sound Somerset, the lead domestic violence agency in Somerset County, NJ. While raising awareness about teen dating safety and healthy relationships, the SPEAK™ 5K also raises funds to support S+SS's programs that empower adult and child survivors of intimate partner violence and domestic abuse.

Recognizing the unique circumstances arising from the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 SPEAK™ 5K will be a virtual event this year for the safety of our participants. We hope you will join us for the Virtual SPEAK™ 5K and that, while Running for Healthy Relationships, you engage in social distancing and other recommended CDC guidelines to minimize the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19.

The Virtual SPEAK™ 5K/will take place from Saturday, October 3rd to Sunday, October 11th. 
You determine the location of your event!

If you want to recreate the atmosphere of previous SPEAK™ 5Ks, you can always grab a few others to run a socially distanced race on the paved roads and paths at Duke Island Park. Or, if you prefer, choose another favorite 5K route.

Instructions will be emailed to you a few days in advance of the Virtual SPEAK™ 5K with details on how to print your personalized race bib and easily record your time or that you participated.
