Welcome to the Berkeley Heights 5K homepage.

Thank you everyone, (Runners, Walkers, Volunteers & Sponsors) who helped make our 23rd Annual Berkeley Heights 5K Charity Road Race & Fitness Walk another huge success! Together we did some good for Hurricane Dorian relief in the Northern Bahamas, for helping to build the new BH YMCA, for the BH Education Foundation and more.

Set up with a new photo booth, performance race tees, awards, and 23 years of great memories led to a wonderful morning of family fun, friendly competition and a great sense of community support. As a result, together we raised another $15,000, bringing our 23-year charitable fundraising to $237,000. Put this together with 1,000's of runners and walkers in our main events and 100's of smiling children in our free fun runs. Not bad for a "small town" road race event.

Free Photos of our 2019 BH5K are available on our Albums page, where you can download your favorite photos for free, yes free, and even view photos from past years.

Thanks again to everyone who helped make our 23rd Annual event Special!

Please save the date for our 24th annual BH5K Sunday, September 19th, 2021 and please patronize our sponsors (see sponsorship page for a complete list with links), without them this wonderful community event would not be possible.

Our 24th BH5K holds great promise, together with your participation, ideas and energy, we will make it a day to remember.

As always, please let me know how we can make the 2021 BH5K the best yet,

Dr. Patrick Smith

The Berkeley Heights "Run for the Health of It!" Charity Road Race and Fitness Walk was established in 1996 to help lend support to non-profit organizations. Since its inception, the event has raised over $237,000 and assisted over 30 local & national charitable organizations. Please visit our charities page for a complete list of those who received gifts last year.

This unique small town event draws runners, walkers and spectators alike to Memorial Field to join in the festivities. Approximately 500 Runners will race through tree-lined neighborhoods in the Berkeley Heights 5K, which is sanctioned by the USA Track and Field Association and is a 500-point race in the New Balance New Jersey Grand Prix Series. Non-runners and families can enjoy the fun by entering the 1.5-mile fitness walk, which winds through sections of the tree-lined residential 5K course. Our Free Tot Trot and Fun Runs for children ages 2-11 round out the day with over 150 smiling children dashing across Memorial Field. Please join us this year for a morning of friendly competition and family fun!
