More than 850 runners and walkers are expected at this weekend’s second annual Trinity Academy 5K Reindeer Run/Walk.
If you haven’t pre-registered and want to participate, it’s not too late. Registration opens prior to the race at 7 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1., at Trinity Academy, 235 Bloomfield Ave., in Caldwell.
The run/walk begins promptly at 9:30 a.m. at the starting line on Hatfield Street, at the intersection of Forest Avenue.
The USATF-NJ 500 Point Grand Prix sanctioned race 5K course travels through the Caldwells and finishes at the Trinity Academy parking lot. The top three finishers in every age category and the top male and female will receive prizes.
