This year is the 10th Run in the Park and to celebrate we are introducing a new logo, and t-shirts will be long-sleeved this year. We are also offering an upgrade to the shirts to a technical running shirt for $10. NOTE: T-shirts can only be guaranteed if you register by April 15.
Join Main Street Highland Park for a day of fun starting with the 10th annual Run in the Park 5k. The course, closed to traffic during the race, starts on North 5th Ave by the high school and then heads downhill towards New Brunswick for a fast first mile. The race then winds it’s way through the historic streets of Highland Park before finishing on the high school track. The event welcomes all participants including strollers, wheelchairs, and walkers.
Kids races will take place on the track after the 5k at approximately 10am. Kids races distances will be: a toddler dash, 200m (half lap), 400m (full lap), and 800m (2 laps). Children may participate in more than one.
A new course was certified for 2015. The new course allows us to start and finish in the same area – registration will be in the area by the High School track, where the race has always finished – the new course is only slightly different from the old course.
