The Mahoney Family 5K, formerly known as the Expand Your Horizons 5K, is celebrating our 5th year! Located in beautiful Brookdale Park, participants begin near the lower parking lot, and complete two loops around the park. There are a few small hills, and a water station is offered half way through! (USATF-NJ sanction number 15-07-407)
Our event is a family oriented 5K that attacts participants of all ages and abilities. This year, we are offering participants the option to register to either RUN or WALK. This simply means that if you would like to be timed and considered for an age group award select the RUN option. If you are coming to talk a nice walk with friends and family in support of a great cause, and aren't concerned with your time select WALK!
We have also created the options for participants to create a team and recruit friends and family members to join. Prizes will be awarded the day of the event for the team with the most pre-registered members!
