USATF Certified Course NJ14522JHP. USATF Sanctioned Race, $3 discount for USATF members
Tucked along the the banks of the Musconetcong River halfway between Allentown PA and New York City is the idylic rural town of Hampton Borough, New Jersey (pop. 1401). It's the kind of place that makes you want to whistle the theme from the Andy Griffith show -- and where the mayor and council thinks it's a great idea to completely close the country roads surrounding their little municipality for their town's annual 5K! Oh, and we're giving T-Bone steaks as prizes to the first place overall Man and Woman.
The 5K honors the life of the late Terry "T-Bone" Butler, a civic leader and educator. All proceeds benefit students at North Hunterdon/Vorhees School District and University of Rhode Island through The Terry Butler Memorial Scholarship Foundation, which has already awarded more than $25,000 in scholarships to deserving students at the University of Rhode Island, North Hunterdon and Voorhees HS.
