2017 Unified 5K Trail Run
Be Part of the Movement.
Special Olympics New Jersey is proud to announce the inaugural Unified 5K Trail Run and Fun Run. It’s more than a race – it’s a shared experience where runners compete alongside Special Olympics athletes.
What does Unified mean?
Dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experience, the Unified movement joins people with and without intellectual disabilities through Special Olympics. It is inspired by a simple principle: the act of competing together is a quick path to understanding, acceptance and friendship.
Participants can select to compete in the timed 5K or the Fun Run which is a NON-COMPETITIVE 1 mile and you can run, jog or walk the trail - for fun!
Registration fee - $30 until midnight of Saturday, October 21st. On-site registration will be available day-of the race, Sunday, October 22nd at $35.
After registration, your own personal fundraising page is automatically created. Keep fundraising and share your page with family and friends to help reach your fundraising goal.
