5K and Kids’ Fun Run

5K and Kids’ Fun Run

Tuesday, July 12, 2016     /     Contact: Lisa Harap


As one of the biggest races in Hoboken, this event supports local youth charities, including Hoboken Boys and Girls Club and the Jubilee Center. There is a fun run and other special events for the kids before the evening kicks off with 1500+ runners participating in the waterfront 5K. An after party along the pier is a great way for volunteers and runners alike to end a successful night.
