Event description

Description

The 5K and 10K Runs and 5K Walk will be held on Saturday, November 18 at Handloff Park on Barksdale Rd in Newark. Pre-race shirt and number pick up at the Parks and Recreation office will be held on Friday, Nov. 17 from 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. for those registered by Nov. 15.

Please remember that pets are not comfortable in the heat and crowds of large events, so for their safety and the safety of those attending the event, please leave your pets at home.

This is a rain or shine event. For additional information, please call the Newark Parks and Recreation Department at 302-366-7000 or the Hotline at 366-7147.

Both courses (5K and 10K) have been Certified. There will be 10 men’s and 10 women’s divisions in each run. The first 500 registrants will receive a long sleeve T-shirt. Prizes will be awarded to overall winners, as well as winners in age group categories for each run. Overall 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards will be given for the 5K Walk. Be sure to list your age on race day so we can accurately place you in the appropriate division. Random awards will be given during the awards ceremony, following the 5K. All winners must be present during the ceremony in order to collect their award.

This year’s online registration will be taken on the Races2Run website (www.races2run.com) for your convenience through November 10. You may still fill out our standard registration form for the race and mail or walk in your registration.

Registrations must be received by Wednesday, November 15. Part of the proceeds go towards the James F. Hall Scholarship Fund to provide tuition assistance to youth who would otherwise be unable to participate in activities and programs through Newark Parks and Recreation Department.

Once again this year the Ancient Order of Hibernians will be collecting coats that will be distributed to people in need throughout the area. Anyone interested in making a donation may bring coats in good condition the morning of the race.
