Course Description:

5 Kilometer (3.1 Miles) Course

The 5K Race to Wellness takes place in scenic Montgomery Township, Somerset County New Jersey. The five-kilometer loop course is USA Track & Field sanctioned and certified (NJ15518JHP). The entire course takes place inside the New Skillman Park on maintained paved roads and paved 12 foot wide walking paths with an asphalt surface. The route can be considered mostly flat with one small hill during the first mile and some gradual declines the next 1.5 miles. There is a very gradual incline to the finish.

The run starts in the left of Skillman Park on Main Blvd. During the event, Main Blvd. will be closed to traffic, which will allow runners to use both lanes.
