For 18 years, the Newstead 5K race has kicked off the new school year in South Orange-Maplewood, attracting hundreds of enthusiastic runners and walkers for a morning of healthy activity, connection and fundraising. After a virtual “INstead 5K” last fall, we’re thrilled to be able to run together again this September. Of course, if you’re not around that morning, you can still participate by running or walking when and where you’d like.
The race will begin at the South Mountain Annex at 9:00 AM on September 25th, with chip-timing provided by CompuScore. Race registration is here. Entry is only $25 per person until September 18; after that the registration fee will increase to $35. Participants will get our popular race T-shirts (while supplies last).
We are most grateful to the 47 local businesses and families who sponsored last year’s INstead 5K! In addition to being featured on Achieve’s website and monthly newsletter, sponsors receive community exposure by getting their names or logos on the popular race T-shirts.
