Whippany Fire Company 5K Race/Walk

 

Do you know how many steps there are in a 5K race? Answer 4265 steps. Do you know how many calories are burned in a 5K race?  These numbers are based on a 150lb person, you will burn approx. 228 calories if you run or approx. 186 if you walk it either way you win.

On Sunday May 6th the Whippany Fire Company will host its annual 5K race/walk. 

The start and finish will be at Bee Meadow Park. There will be medals for

Top three M/F   19 and under, 5-year age groups 20 thru 85+ Top M/F over all.

 

There is a category for Firefighters that would like to run in their turn out gear.  Several

Firefighters have done in years past to honor a fallen Brother. The top three Firefighters

running in turn out gear (SCBA optional) will receive medals.   This is also a great way to

show the Brotherhood in the Fire Service.

 

 

This race is Sanctioned by USATF and offers the Grand Prix (500 pts).  The course is on the roadways that offer flat, hill and incline.

The Fire Company is currently looking for Runners and Sponsors for the Race.

Sponsorships start at $100.00 and go to $1750.00.  The Fire Company would like to thank Wegmans for being the Title Sponsor again this year.  The registration fee is: $25.00 Pre-registered by April 23rd, $30.00 after and day of the race.

Students 19 and under and USATF-NJ - $23.00 Pre-registered by April 23th, $30.00 after and day of race.  Race day sign up starts at 7AM

 

Come out and support the Volunteers of Whippany Fire that are there for us 24/7/365.  They have at times had to put their life on hold to answer an emergency call for the residences or business in Whippany.  The hope is you never need the services of these dedicated volunteers, but it’s nice to know they are there to answer the call.  So as residences or business of Hanover lets support them by either running, sponsoring, or inviting a friend to join in this great event.  You do not have to be a Town resident to partake in the fun.
