Welcome to the Berkeley Heights 5K Homepage. Our 18th annual 5K road race and fitness walk will be held on Sunday, September 14th, 2014, 9:30am at Memorial Field in Berkeley Heights, NJ (07922). We have an exciting morning of friendly competition and family fun planned as well as a sea of community support, so I invite you to register early this year (which guarantees a custom ringspun cotton race tee and a goodie bag) and join us!
Photos of our 2013 5K are available now from our Albums page, where you can download your photos for free!
Thank you everyone, (Runners, Walkers, Volunteers & Sponsors) who helped make the 17th Annual Berkeley Heights 5K Charity Road Race & Fitness Walk a huge success! With the weather threatening, we were forced to host the event, for the first time in our history, from inside the Berkeley Heights Community Center. But, everyone pitched in and made it work! Then, as is our tradition, the Sun and Blue Skies returned just in time for the start of the race, drying the roads and making for ideal running/walking conditions. As a result, together, we raised over $10,000, bringing our 17 year charitable fundraising past the $140,000 mark, not bad for a "small town" road race.
The 3rd annual BH5K/Red Cross Community Blood Drive exceeded our goal, collecting 27 pints of Life Saving Blood and raising much needed funds for the Red Cross, who provided so much relief to those effected by Super Storm Sandy and other local and national disasters. So, a huge thank you to all who stepped forward and answered the call to help!!
Please go to our Album page to view nearly 300 HD event photos, which are again Free to download and share!
Also, save September 14th 2014, the date of the 18th annual Berkeley Heights 5K. We know, that together we can reach new heights, so please join us and bring your friends to one of the best "small town" road races.
Thanks again and please patronize our Sponsors who make this wonderful community event possible each year, and as always, your comments and ideas are welcome,

The Berkeley Heights "Run for the Health of It!" Charity Road Race and Fitness Walk was established in 1996 to help lend support to non-profit organizations. Since its inception, the event has raised over $143,600 and assisted over 30 charitable organizations. This unique small town event draws runners, walkers and spectators alike to Memorial Field to join in the festivities. Approximately 500 Runners will race through tree-lined neighborhoods in the Berkeley Heights 5K, which is sanctioned by the USA Track and Field Association and is a 500-point race in the New Balance New Jersey Grand Prix Series. Non-runners and families can enjoy the fun by entering the 1.5-mile fitness walk, which winds through sections of the tree-lined residential 5K course. Our Free Tot Trot and Fun Runs for children ages 2-11 round out the day with over 150 smiling children dashing across Memorial Field. Please join us this year for a morning of friendly competition and family fun.
