WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J. -- Registration is now open for the 30th annual Run for Education, on Sunday, June 12, put on by the Woodcliff Lake Educational Foundation to raise money for local schools.
The event features a 10K run, a 5K run and a "Kids Fun Run" -- as well as a DJ, vendors and additional family-fun activities, like a dunk tank and other carnival-type games.
The run is on a paved, USATF-certified course with tree-lined residential streets, with water stops and posted mile markers. There will be winners for the top three overall, and in five-year age category groups, for male and female participants.
Packet pickup will be at the New Jersey Running Company, located at 22 Chestnut Ridge Rd., in Montvale, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 11.
All proceeds go directly back to the local schools.
The Woodcliff Educational Foundation has been supporting the schools for 30 years. The Run for Education is its biggest fundraiser to provide needed resources to the schools which are not covered by the normal budget. Computer labs, anti-bullying programs, musical instruments, Imagination Lab, iPads and more have been provided through the WCLEF.
The 10 K race begins at 8:30 a.m., the 5K race takes off at 10:30 and the Kids Fun Run begins at 11:30. The address is 134 Woodcliff Ave., in Woodcliff Lakes.
The total early bird fee for the 10K and 5K runs is $24.50; it's $28.50 after June 3. The kids-run fee is $7. Sign up for the run -- or just donate -- here.
