CHATHAM, NJ - Registration is open for St. Patrick's 5th Annual 5K Race and Mile Fun Run, set for Sunday morning, Oct. 26.
The 5k race is a sanctioned USA Track and Field New Jersey Grand Prix event, but there is fun for everyone at this race.
“This truly is a great community event, bringing together people from the Chathams and others along with numerous community organizations, local vendors and sponsors," Karen Wittmer, race director of the event, said. "St. Patrick’s youth ministry is always on hand to provide face painting and other fun activities for the kids including an inflatable
bounce house. Throw in a bag piper to start the race and it makes for a great day.”
Each year the race organizers distribute proceeds from the race back into the community. Last year, the Chatham Borough Fire Department, the Chatham Emergency Squad and St. Patrick’s Youth Ministry all benefited.
St. Patrick’s 5K is also proud to be associated with the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign and Mayors Bruce Harris from Chatham Borough and Mayor Kevin Sullivan from Chatham Township, in an effort to promote healthy activity will be on hand to kick off the race.
