The Red Bank Classic 5K returns to downtown Red Bank on June 15 with an 8:30 a.m. race start on Broad Street. The course, which winds through borough neighborhoods, is certified and sanctioned by USA Track and Field (USATF) and is also a USATF 2019 Grand Prix Event.
Awards will be presented to the top three overall 5K finishers and to the top three finishers in each age group, including 14 and under and in 5-year groups starting at ages 15-19. An award will also be presented to the top team and top four finishers on each team. Running teams will be scored based on the average of their top four runners.
The Kids Broad Street Dash, a fun run for children ages 12 and under, will follow the 5K on Broad Street with three races: 200 yards, 100 yards and 50 yards.
Other activities include a pre-race warm-up on Broad Street led by Soul Strong and post-race activities, including a Fitness Fest in Marine Park and an after-party at Red Rock Tap + Grill with a live band. Local eateries are also providing food to the runners after the race.
