2025 Resolution Run & Walk 5K

Wed January 1, 2025 Hillsborough, NJ 08844 US Directions


We invite you to be a part of the 24th Annual Resolution Run 5K taking place on January 1st, 2024, in Hillsborough, NJ - a tradition that is good for our racers, good for the community, and good for our Sponsors!

This 3.1-mile race is walker friendly and welcomes 600 participants each year. The Resolution Run is a USATF certified Grand Prix event. All participants receive a quality, custom designed long sleeve “Resolution Run Hoodie Sweatshirt.” It’s the perfect antidote to winter and a collectors item to be proud of!


2023: 638 registrants. 59% female, 41% male. Age range: under 18 (12%) 18-29 (6%), 30-39 (10%), 40-49 (24%), 50-64 (37%), 65+ (11%). 201 participants from Hillsborough.

Project Graduation directly contacts 600+ families of the Senior Class and reaches the entire school population (2300+) through communications from HHS Administration. We additionally connect through community social and hard media outlets with thousands of local subscribers.


It’s New Year's Day and while our race starts at the respectable time of 11 AM, participants are also welcome to join us virtually and complete their 5K on their own time that day! 


Founded by Gary Verhoorn, the Resolution Run is celebrating its 24th year. Proceeds from sponsorships, registration fees, fundraising efforts, and donations benefit Hillsborough High School’s Project Graduation & Rock Steady Boxing. 

Project Graduation is a 30+ year tradition in Hillsborough where graduates of Hillsborough's Class of 2024 will enjoy a high-spirited, all-night celebration and party immediately following their commencement exercises in June. This popular local effort is part of a nationally recognized program whose goal is to provide a drug and alcohol-free celebration of life while giving graduates a positive sendoff. Your support allows the event to remain free and available to all students.

Rock Steady Boxing is a unique program in Hillsborough organized by Barbara Kelly to improve symptoms and quality of life in people diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. Your involvement will cover the cost of educational programs and support a scholarship program for those in our community who may not be able to participate as a result of limited funds.
