**If you plan on getting to the event after 8:00 AM, (after the race has started) you will not be able to enter the high school at the traffic light. Instead, park at the William R Satz Middle School that is to the left of the high school on Crawfords Corner Road.
The 5K run will commence at 8:00 AM at the Start Line.
Please don't be late!!!! Get there early so you can get your runner's bib
and get all set at the start line with plenty of time to spare.
The race course will take us around the high school and then off of the high school property
onto the surrounding roads.
Since the roadways will be closed to accommodate the runners, it's so important that the race starts on time so the roadways can be reopened as soon as possible.
Please make sure to arrive early to the 5k event. Prior to 8:00 AM, enter the high school at the light on Crawfords Corner Road and head straight to the back parking lot where you will see our Registration Tents and Finish Line.
Park and head over to pick up your bib at the registration tent.
**If you are not registered for the race, we will assist you to register onsite.
But it's best to pre-register before race day!!!!
After 8:00 AM, you will not be able to enter the high school at the light on Crawfords Corner Road.
But you can park at the William R Satz Middle School that is next to the high school.
Note: Even if you are not able to make the event in-person, virtual participation is available!
Please register to join us Virtually.
Where ever you are in the world, you can run/walk right along with us for the 5k!

HOLMDEL COMMUNITY MAGAZINE
A Run to Remember Ed Harris
By LiliAnn Paras
Pg. 58 There is an expression that “bad things happen to good people,” and so it was for local “good guy” Ed Harris and his family. Ed succumbed to complications from COVID-19 in a hospital early last year, before very much was known about the disease. The diagnosis, and restrictions on visiting, blindsided and devastated his family. “We could not visit our dad in the hospital due to strict rules, so all we could do was pray. As he slowly got worse, we made sure to stay strong for our mom,” recalled his sons, Nick and Jeff. Although the family could not physically be with him, Ed was surrounded by the love of his family and the community, and the affection continues.

A lifelong resident of the town and owner of Holmdel Farms, a landscaping business passed down from his father, Ed Harris was beloved by his community and could often be found sitting in the stands at Holmdel's various sporting events, cheering for the local teams.
