5k Race for Education
The Greater Nanuet Chamber of Commerce 5K Race/Walk participants can expect a fun-filled day of competition and community spirit. The race will start and finish in front of Nanuet High School and will begin at 8:30 AM. Each runner will receive a bib, timing chip, and official completion time, and the first 150 participants who complete the actual 5K race (not including virtual or walks) will receive a medal. Runners can sign in for their bibs and timing chips starting at 7:00 AM. To ensure a prompt starting time and proper supplies on race day, participants are strongly encouraged to pre-register.
The top male and female overall finishers in the 5K race will receive a $50 Gift Certificate, second-place overall finishers will receive a $25 GC, and third-place overall finishers will receive a $15 GC. The race is open to participants of all ages and will be held rain or shine. Age groups for the run/walk include: Up to 14 years, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+.
During registration, participants have the option to purchase a race t-shirt. To ensure shirts are available on race day, t-shirt orders must be placed by April 15. The one-mile walk is available for those who prefer a shorter course, while the virtual 5K can be completed at your own pace, outside, on a treadmill, or in your neighborhood and both options help support a great cause.
Donations and registration fees from this event are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law and support Nanuet & Beyond’s efforts.
