Saturday in the Park Women's 5K - Virtual Edition

Sat September 5 - Sun September 13 Holmdel, NJ 07733 US
Saturday in the Park 2020 is now Virtual


The 2020 Saturday in the Park 5K "live event" has been cancelled, a difficult decision due to ongoing coronavirus health and safety concerns for runners, walkers, spectators, volunteers, and the partners and community organizations that support the event. While this decision weighs heavily on us, the health and well-being of our running community is of the utmost importance. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to in-person events in the future.

We are now open as a Virtual 5K - Saturday in the Park 2020 will be different than usual, allowing you to run or walk the  5K on any day from Saturday September 5, through Saturday, September 12, in a park or not in a park! Simply run or walk the 5K, then enter your time to see how it compares to other participants.

The $15 registration fee will help us to donate to our event charities - during this time when they are suffering financially. If you prefer not to run or walk the Virtual 5K - consider making a donation to the event at this link.

ALSO - For 2020 - There is a Virtual 5K for Men - to allow more people to support the event and charities. Simply select the appropriate event when registering.

Thanks to all for your continued support of the JSRC and SIP!
