SOMA TogetheRunWalk for MEND

Our two towns have been through....a lot this past year. It is time we remember why we love SOMA, through the spirit of community, good health, and mutual support.

Join us on Saturday, May 22nd, for a HYBRID Run/Walk beginning at 9am. This family friendly event will feature an exciting live broadcast, category prizes to run/walk and fundraisers, and the ability to participate on whatever 5K route works best for you that day (choose your own or click on routes to see 4 options from by SOMA Fox Running Club). Our Facebook Group will enable community chatter, photo sharing from various places around our 2 towns by participants, and shoutouts as participants cross the finish line.

For those wanting a true start/finish line experience, you can join us at one of 2 routes starting from the Skate House area of Meadlowland Conservacy/Meadlowland Park in South Orange!
