PWP 5K, Kids Fun Run and After Party- July 16th, 2019 – Hoboken NJ

Tuesday, July 16, 2019     /     Contact: Michelle Gesser/Nicole Rocanello -


As one of the biggest races in Hoboken, this event supports local youth charities, including Hoboken Boys and Girls Club, TRUE Mentors and the Jubilee Center. There is a fun run and other special events for the kids before the evening kicks off with 1000+ runners participating in the waterfront 5K. An after party, including live music from The Counterfeiters and a beer/wine garden along the pier is a great way for volunteers and runners alike to end a successful night.
