About This Activity

The 2nd Annual Chatham Club Fit-to-Food 5K run to benefit the Community FoodBank of New Jersey takes place in early autumn. The run begins and ends at The Chatham Club.  Runners will turn right out of the Club, head to and then up Shunpike Avenue. A right turn takes them onto Noe Avenue followed by another right hand turn into a quiet residential area.  Participants will eventually turn back onto Noe Avenue continuing downhill to turn right onto Southern Boulevard.

The route follows Southern Boulevard to the last right hand turn back into the parking lot of The Chatham Club where cheering friends and family, along with food, music, and a variety of vendor booths will be waiting for you. And, for those of you who are competitive, the run is USATF NJ Grand Prix certified.

This fun event, the 2nd of many Fit-to-Food 5K runs, will raise much needed funds for the Community FoodBank of New Jersey while promoting fitness among the local residents.  Participation is limited, so register early to ensure a spot. Come join us!
