NEW MILFORD, N.J. -- Runners who want to take part in the annual run hosted by New Milford Fire Co. 1 on Saturday, June 18 but are intimidated by the distance can join a group training for the race.
New runners can be part of the Couch to 5K Community (C25K) and train to get in shape for the event. "Couch to 5K" programs are designed to get just about anyone from the couch to running 3.1 miles or 30 minutes in nine weeks.
The annual fire department race includes USATF-NJ Masters State Championship 5K as well as a new "1 Mile Road Race." There will also be a Family Walk and Kids Dash.
There will be activities for children and a health expo for adults. The event includes complimentary pre-race food and a post-race family BBQ with live music and entertainment. Beer and wine will also be available. There will be raffles all morning.
Discounts are offered for four-person and family team registrations.
