Race proceeds benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), a global organization that advances breakthroughs for Type 1 diabetes. Guests will be able to interact with JDRF representatives at information tables located pre-race near the course start line and post-race at the brewery.
This year’s 5K run follows the same course used by the Haddonfield Memorial High School cross-country team through Maria Barnaby Greenwald Park, some of which is a trail run. The race finish line will also be located on Park Boulevard and all participants will receive a 5K race shirt and swag bag. Awards will be presented to overall male and female winners and age-group winners.
