From the Achieve Foundation of South Orange and Maplewood:
Our 17th Annual Newstead 5K will be happening on September 21st this year starting at 9AM. This fun, family-friendly event is open to community members of all fitness levels and is one of Achieve’s major fundraisers.
The race route is a rolling 5K (3.1 mile) course in the quiet residential Newstead neighborhood, with chip timing provided by CompuScore. The morning event includes a 2-mile walk option for those who’d rather walk than run. A half-mile Kids Fun Run, sponsored by Able Baker, will happen after the 5K (at approximately 9:45).
Race time is 9:00 a.m., beginning at the South Mountain School Annex, 112 Glenview Rd., South Orange. Presenting sponsor D&I Fitness will lead participants in fun and dynamic warm-up exercises prior to race start, and will provide their six-week race training plan that can help get anyone up to speed and ready to run. Registration is $25 (Fun Run is free; no registration required.) Click here for online registration.
