The 12th-annual Newstead 5K is this weekend — Saturday, Sept. 20! The iconic race transforms the tranquil Newstead neighborhood of South Orange into a bustling hub of more than 500 runners and walkers and scores of cheering fans.
The regional race raises about $15,000 to support important Achieve programs, including teacher grants, volunteer tutors, technology upgrades and facility improvements, to enrich the learning experience of students in all South Orange and Maplewood district schools.
The race begins at 9 a.m. (registration opens at 8 a.m.). There will be a pre-race warmup at 8:30 a.m. led by South Orange’s D&I Fitness.
