MILLBURN, NJ - TAPinto.net is one of the sponsors for The American Red Cross North Jersey Region's annual Run For The Red 5K Race and Walk this Sunday, Dec. 7 in Millburn.

The event is being coordinated with the help of Investors Bank as official sponsor and partners including Sneaker Factory, The Alternative Press and the Millburn Township Committee. Event co-chairs Barry and Pat O’Brien of Short Hills expect this year’s race to be the largest in the event’s history.

“We have been expanding our reach to attract both competitive runners and casual joggers and walkers,” said Barry O’Brien. “This year we are also calling on our participants to raise funds through a great online feature to maximize our success for the mission of the Red Cross.”

Teams of walkers and runners are welcome to participate in the race and can compete for fundraising prizes and race awards to 5K finishers by age group and by team. The event offers participants a community day complete with door prizes, a DJ, snacks and hot chocolate after the race, and team photos. Additionally, Red Cross blood donors will be given a “Life Saver” tag to wear on race day in recognition of their life-saving actions. 

Event day registration and check-in begins at 8:30 a.m. at the Millburn Free Public Library on Glen Avenue in Millburn. Children can compete in free Kid’s Fun Sprint at 9:30 a.m. and the official race begins at 10 a.m. Walkers and runners will enjoy a certified race course sanctioned by USATF-NJ that provides members with 500 grand prix points and is chip timed and scored by Compuscore. The race is an “out and back” course that goes up into the South Mountain Reservation and returns with a fast, down-hill stretch and flat finish. 

Registration is $20 for all participants who register in advance. The last day for online registration is Dec. 2. Event day registration is $25 on site or at the Sneaker Factory on Millburn Avenue in Millburn on Dec. 4, 5, and 6. USATF-NJ members receive a $3 discount.
