This year's event will not be as festive as we like but we are still happy to be back running in person. For those participating in our race for the first time, please come back next year also when there isn't a global pandemic to see all the fun things we normally do to celebrate the New Year. 

Thank you all so very much for your continued support of this race and we will see you Saturday to kick off 2022! 

Athlete Commitment:

  • Follow physical distancing suggestions.

  Indoors at the municipal building. Hillsborough Township has a mask policy inside their government buildings. We ask that you follow this. 

Postrace Food: 
No hot pretzels this year as they are not individually packaged. We will have individually wrapped bagels, bananas and water for when you cross the finish line. 

Switch to Virtual: 
Should you wish to change to virtual participation and upload results on race day, you will need to follow these instructions to officially change events. If uploading results is not important to you, you can just pick up your race swag and run virtually without doing anything. If you switch to virtual and need your hoodie shipped, please make an $8 donation and email courtney-newman@comcast.net your shipping info. For last minute changes that require shipping, we cannot promise it will make it there by New Year's Day. The option to change to the virtual run will be open until midnight on December 31st. 

Still Time to Fundraise or Donate:
Thank you to all who have started a fundraising page or supported another participant's page. It truly makes a difference for HHS Class of 2022 and those in our community impacted by Parkinson's. Plenty of time to still fundraise or donate! Participants who raised $100 and wish to cash in on their registration refund should email courtney-newman@comcast.net


Start: There will only be one start. It will be narrower due to new curbing in the area of the start/finish. This area will be coned so that it is not a tripping hazard. See picture below. We ask that everyone please line up according to where they expect to finish in the crowds. Walkers should be at the back. Anyone who wishes to distance and hop in the race a minute later is welcome do so but there is no start mat so your 5K time will include your wait time. Please be aware that participants loop the municipal building and will be crossing through the start line again, please do not get in their way.
