& 1 Mile Fun Run


The Goodwill 5000 Meter Run is a USATF-NJ 500 point race that is open to runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. The certified two-turn course runs through the beautiful, historic estate section of Montclair, New Jersey. The race staging area is inside the Montclair Art Museum. Proceeds from this event benefit Goodwill Rescue Mission of Newark, New Jersey, a non-profit organization that has provided food, shelter, and medical care to poor and homeless since 1896. For the past two years, the GW 5000 Meter Run has raised thousands of dollars for the Mission’s important programs, and we invite you to be part of this year’s success!

Amenities include: Champion Chip scoring by Compuscore, a post-race breakfast including Starbucks Coffee and Bloomfield’s Best Bagels, great goody bags and custom-designed long-sleeved t-shirts to the first 500 registrants. Trophies and prizes are awarded 3-deep in 5-year age categories; 1 mile Family Fun Run.

Food Pantry Collection: Entrants are encouraged to bring a can of food, dry good, or gently used winter coats (especially men’s) to the starting line to help those in need at GRM’s shelter and food pantry.

"Better lace up your running shoes and start training! We are very pleased to offer a new prize of $150 to the man and woman who break the existing overall male and female course records. Information on the existing course records can be found at www.goodwill5000meter.org."
