Welcome to the Berkeley Heights 5K Homepage. Our 19th annual BH5K Charity Road Race & Fitness Walk will be held on Sunday, September 20th, 2015, 9:30 am at Memorial Field in Berkeley Heights, NJ 07922. We have another exciting morning of friendly completion and family fun planned as well as a sea of community support, so I invite you to register early (convenient online registration is now open), which guarantees a custom ring spun cotton race tee and reusable eco tote goodie bag. Join us!
Photos of our 2014 5K are available now from our Albums page, where you can download your photos for free (or even access photos from previous races)!
Please be sure to watch the promo video of our event!
Thank you everyone, (Runners, Walkers, Volunteers & Sponsors) who helped make the 18th annual Berkeley Heights 5K Charity Road Race & Fitness Walk a huge success! As a result, together, we raised over $10,000, bringing our 18 year charitable fundraising past the $160,000 mark, not bad for a "small town" road race.
The 4th annual BH5K/Red Cross Community Blood Drive exceeded our goal, collecting 34 pints of life saving blood and raising much needed funds for the Red Cross, who provided so much relief to those affected by Super Storm Sandy and other local and national disasters. So, a huge thanks to all who stepped forward and answered the call to help!!
I invite you to go to our Album page to view nearly 300 HD 2014 event photos, which are again free to download and share! (you can still access photos from previous years)
Thanks again, save the date for our 19th BH5K, September 20th, 2015, and please patronize our Sponsors (see our sponsorship page for a complete list) who make this wonderful community event possible each year.
As always, your comments and ideas are welcome,
Dr. Patrick Smith

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 $160,000 and assisted nearly 30 local & national 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!
