HOBOKEN, NJ - While the annual Hobooken 5K to End Homelessness will have a different feel this year as a virtual event, organizers are hoping that it will prove to be lucky number 11!

In an effort to encourage registrations for the run that participants will embark on anytime between October 26 and November 2, organizers are having a special flash sale sign up that ends at 11:59 p.m. Sunday. By using the code “August5” runners will receive $5 off at sign up. 

“During this challenging time, the Hoboken Shelter needs your help more than ever,” the race’s website says, adding that the event raises nearly $100,000 for the shelter each year.

Participants are encouraged to “get creative” in their participation this year, including by having friends, colleagues, and family members contribute based on every home workout, socially distanced walk or run, live-streamed class, or TV binge session they complete. “Have a backyard? Run in circles for the Shelter and have friends pledge $2 for every lap completed,” the site continued, adding that for $2 the Hoboken Shelter can provide a hot meal to someone in need. 

Prizes will be awarded to both individual and team participants.
