This is our 18th year and we know how to put on a great race!

The Resolution Run 5K is held in centrally located Hillsborough Township in Somerset County, New Jersey. It’s a low-key, fun celebration of the New Year for all levels of runners and walkers. You can even stay up late the night before for your own celebration! Join us Tuesday morning, January 1, 2019, at the civilized time of 11:00 am!
