SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ --  Early Bird registration is now open for the annual Scotch Plains 0.5k Race (not a typo)!

Grab your couch potato-loving friends on Sunday, Aug. 18, and join  Mayor Al Smith and other town officials in a fun "race" that takes participants in a 547 yard circle. 

Beginning in Town Center, with a shotgun start. Go too fast and you are sure to get dizzy! But don't drag your feet, a pint of beer (obvious age restrictions apply) or a cup of ice cream await you at the finish line.
