The race has something for everyone! A gorgeous flat, fast course with view of the Hoboken waterfront. Fun, costumed event with judging for best costumes! There is a Kid's Race for the little ones. Food and fun at the race end and a DJ on site. Special race pricing ends 5/31, so sign up today. 

The Hoboken Shelter transforms lives by providing meals for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, and services to support people to become housed. In addition to sheltering 50 people nightly and serving 500 meals daily, the Shelter provides supportive services to help guests gain employment, achieve independence, and reintegrate into the community.
