The Butler/First 5K run/walk is an annual race and charity fundraiser hosted by Butler College and First College at Princeton University. The B/F 5K directly donates all proceeds to the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (T.A.S.K.). This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Butler/First 5K will have both an in person and virtual option. Those who are a part of Princeton's Covid Testing Protocol can sign up for the in person event.  Those who are not a part of Princeton's Covid Testing Protocol can sign up for the virtual race option.  We welcome runners of all ages and levels to participate in this fun and meaningful event. 

The registration fee is $10 per participant and will go directly to T.A.S.K. All participants will receive a t-shirt after they have participated in the event. Additionally, the top three finishers for both men and women will receive prizes.  This year prizes will also be awarded for the most creative costumes!
