Published on

 (Allentown, NJ) – The Allentown Recreation Commission is sponsoring its 4th annual Historic Allentown 5K on Saturday, September 30 at 9:00 AM.

The race will take place at Allentown’s Heritage Park, which is known for its gorgeous scenery and its wealth of dirt trails which complement the paved oval trail inside the heart of the park. The entire race will take place inside the park and runners will be able to test their abilities on different terrains as they explore the ins and outs of one of the town’s most notable landscapes. 

Runners can register at https://runsignup.com/Race/NJ/Allentown/HistoricAllentown5K and can get further information on the race at https://allentownboronj.com/. Registration to run is $30 and includes a t-shirt. 2023 will be the first year where there is also a one-lap “Fun Run” for recreational runners and children. Registration is $15 (does not include t-shirt) and the “Fun Run” commences at 8:30 AM. 

This event is being sponsored by the Allentown Recreation Commission. The Recreation Commission is committed to improving recreational resources and activities in our community, along with acquiring property for recreational purposes, the maintenance of parkland and equipment, and improving current public playgrounds, recreation places and the approach to said lands.

Race-day packets for the 5K, which include racing bib and t-shirt, can be picked up the morning of the race between at 8:00 am and 8:45 am at Heritage Park. 

If you have any questions or would be interested in volunteering for the event, please contact Allentown Recreation Commission Chairperson Craig Rondinone at recreation@allentownboronj.com.
