Welcome to the Berkeley Heights 5K Homepage. Our 20th anniversary BH5K Charity Road Race & Fitness Walk will be held on Sunday, September 18th, 2016, 9:30 am at Memorial Field in Berkeley Heights, NJ 07922. We have another exciting morning of friendly competition 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 our All New performance race tee (softest, lightest, most comfortable tee shirt I've ever worn), sling backpack goodie bag, plus all new awards and Free Taste of Berkeley Heights food tent during the awards for all to enjoy. Register by September 8th, to receive a 10$ gift card to the Sneaker Factory with 3 locations and save a couple bucks. So please join us and be part of the BH5K family for our special 20th!
Thank you everyone, (Runners, Fitness Walkers, Volunteers & Sponsors) who helped make the 19th annual Berkeley Heights 5K Charity Road Race & Fitness Walk a huge success! As a result, together, we raised over $17,000, bringing our 19 year charitable fundraising past the $170,000 mark, not bad for a "small town" road race.
Photos of our 2015 BH5K 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 2015 event (check our the drone view of the start)!

Thanks again, save the date for our 20th BH5K, September 18th, 2016, and please patronize our Sponsors (see our sponsorship page for a complete list) who make this wonderful community event possible each year.
Our 20th BH5K holds great promise, together with your participation, ideas & energy, we'll make it a day to remember.
So please let me know how we can make the 20th BH5K the best yet,
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 $170,000 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!
