Allentown Recreation Commission to sponsor 5K race on Sept. 25

ALLENTOWN – The Allentown Recreation Commission is sponsoring its second annual Historic Allentown 5K race on Sept. 25 at 9 a.m.

The race (5 kilometers/3.1 miles) will take place at Heritage Park in Allentown. The park is known for its gorgeous scenery and its wealth of dirt trails which complement the paved oval trail inside the heart of the park, according to a press release.

The entire race will take place in the park and runners will be able to test their abilities on different terrains as they explore the ins and outs of one of the town’s most notable landscapes, according to the press release.

Runners may register at https://runsignup.com/Race/NJ/Allentown/HistoricAllentown5K and may obtain further information about the race at https://allentownboronj.com/

Registration to run live is $30 and includes a T-shirt. If runners prefer to participate virtually, the fee is $20 (no T-shirt).

The event is being sponsored by the Allentown Recreation Commission, which is committed to improving recreational resources and activities in the community, acquiring property for recreational purposes, maintaining parkland and equipment, and improving current public playgrounds, recreation places and the approach to those properties, according to the press release.

Race day packets, which include a racing bib and T-shirt, may be picked up the morning of the race between 8-8:45 a.m. at Heritage Park.

Individuals who have any questions or are interested in volunteering for the event may contact Craig Rondinone at recreation@allentownboronj.com
