Packet pick up will continue at Race HQ Thursday and Saturday, and at Memorial Field Sunday at 7:45 a.m. thru 9:20 a.m.

With a beautiful weather forecast, runners and walkers are encouraged to pre-register Thursday and Saturday, to guarantee a custom performance race tee shirt and backpack goodie bag, as a sellout is expected.

“Thanks to our generous sponsors, and plenty of dedicated volunteers (many from BHEF), we are all set to host another wonderful community event," said Race Director Dr. Patrick Smith. "Every dollar collected thru registration for our 5K Run and Family Fitness Walk go towards our charitable grants, as we have no administrative costs. With two major hurricanes striking Texas and Florida we have decided to provide grants to both relief efforts, so we encourage everyone who can run or walk to join us Sunday and help in this effort."

"The Berkeley Heights 5k was founded to promote friendly competition, family fun and a strong sense of community support, over the past 20 years, together we have helped support communities outside ours in time of tragedy and disaster and now is the time for us to lend assistance again,” said Smith.
