Raritan Valley Road Runners will host its 5K Summer Series on July 27, August 10, and August 24.
Registration for this 37th edition of the race series opens at 5:30 p.m. on the evening of each race day. 2.5K run/walk options are also available. All race registration will be held near the boat launch in Donaldson Park in Highland Park.
Races are cross country style, meaning that the terrain will include mostly grass and dirt following the path of the scenic Raritan River.
A complimentary picnic is also included with each race entry. Hot dogs, pizza, and beverages (beer included) are a festive finish to each race.
A special Youth Series will start at 5:30 p.m. on the evening of each scheduled race date. The Youth Series includes shorter distances that are suitable to young children. Registration for the Youth Series opens at 5 p.m.
5K awards will be given to the top three overall male and female finishers in open and master’s categories. A special award will be given on the night of the final race to the top finishers that competed in all three of the races.
