The Fifth Annual HoBOOken Halloween 5K takes place on October 25, 2014!
The HoBOOKen 5K is a fast, flat, fun 5k that SELLS OUT early each year. It takes place on the beautiful Hoboken waterfront, with a backdrop of the NYC skyline. Kids' races, costume contests, great post race refreshments and more! Our course is USATF certified.
The race is produced by the Elysianettes to benefit the Hoboken Shelter, whose mission is to transform lives by providing meals for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, & services to support people to become housed.
