Runners with strollers and or headphones are welcome as are wheelchairs. However, the Spotswood Recreation Department does ask that dogs do sit this race out.

Volunteers will be on hand to direct runners along the course and the path is also clearly marked with white arrows. Two water stations are set up along the route at the mile-one and mile-two markers.

Race day begins with the 1-Mile Fun Run where each participant receives a medal. The 5K follows shortly after the conclusion of the first race.

All the proceeds of the race go to benefit the Spotswood High School Softball and Golf Teams. Both teams are raising money to procure new equipment and uniforms.

Justin Huryk was the overall winner of the Spotswood 2014 5K with a time of 17:00.5.
