MONTCLAIR, NJ - More than 600 people participated in the Mountie Pride Fun Run on Sunday, said co-organizer Linda Bowers.

Hosted at the historic Woodman Field and the vicinity, participants were allowed to participate in the 5K race or the 1K walk. The weather was perfectly sunny with a cool breeze and the spirits were high as participants walked and ran through the streets of Montclair for a chance to receive a race award prize and raise funds for charity.

Prior to the start of the race, there were activities for the entire family to partake in including the dunk tank, music with a live DJ, yoga, face painting and warm-up exercises. MHS gear was also for sale and 35 clubs and sports teams also participated. Local community members and school leaders also got in on the action. Some volunteered to man a table or sit in the dunk tank, while others walked in the race, displaying a total community effort.
