NUTLEY, NJ - Registration is open for the annual Nutley Chamber of Commerce 5K. Certified by USATF NJ, the beneficiary of this year's 5K is the Nutley Educational Foundation. New for 2019 is a mile-long walking route to give those who want to support NEF, but who don't run, the chance to spend time with the community.
For competitive runners, like those who wish to run the New York or Boston Marathon, a USATF certified race gives them points to show those organizations that they are serious runners.
The cerification is also expected to help draw a larger crowd of participants to Nutley for this event. For 2019, the Nutley Educational Foundation (NEF) will be the beneficiary of the 2019 Nutley Chamber of Commerce 5K Fun Run, so more runners equates to more support for Nutley Public Schools.
Taking place early on a Sunday morning, the 5K includes a Kids Fun Run, a Short Sprint, and the annual 5K itself. New for 2019 is a mile long walking course. The walking route was added so people who are not runners can come out and enjoy a morning of activity and show their support for the NEF.
The 5K begins and ends at the Nutley Park Oval, and follows a course along Chestnut St., Passaic Ave, Sattherwaite, Centre St., and along Franklin Ave. to the finish line. Seasoned runners, kids, and even little kids in strollers are a part of this family friendly event.
USATF NJ, governing body for track and field events in the Garden State, certified the route for the 2019 Nutley Chamber of Commerce 5K. The 5K takes place on May 5.
Registration and addiitonal details about the Nutley Chamber of Commerce 5K can be found at Nutley Chamber of Commerce 5K Fun Run.
