Course Information


The Resolution Run 5K takes place in Hillsborough Township, Somerset County, New Jersey. The five-kilometer (3.1 mile) loop course is USA Track & Field – New Jersey (USATF-NJ) sanctioned and certified. The entire course takes place on paved surfaces. The route can be considered mostly flat with no significant changes in elevation.

Police or course marshals will be stationed at all major turns and intersections. The course will be well marked.  A vehicle will lead the pack, and a vehicle will follow the last runner or walker in.  In most cases, the roads used will be open to traffic.  Participants are therefore urged to use caution.  A significant part of the course is marked for bike lanes or uses lightly traveled roads.
