Try something different this New Year's Eve. Ring in the New Year with a 5K run on the stroke of midnight and then celebrate 2018 with a post race party! This is our SEVENTH YEAR And it is going to be even better! PLUS all participants (runners and also just partiers) receive a great swag bag, beer and champagne (one each). 

Your 2018 running and fitness resolution just became more clear! People who purchase the new, RUN ONLY option will have all the same FUN as everyone else but you won't be staying up late at the after-party in the Brazen Head (we know you have other, cool plans, no worries)


 This is a truly unique and enjoyable way to start the New Year! The Race is fun, well organized, and the food and drink afterwards is amazing. No stale bagels at this event! The organizing team is super as well, quick to respond to questions, great to deal with, and just plain awesome. 
Thanks!   K.D.  2016 attendee

ANNOUNCEMENT - The Post Event Party Venue is the Brazen Head Pub, which is 150 yards from the Start / Finish Line.


It was a fun night! I had no expectations for the evening above having a chilly midnight run but it turned out to be a pretty cool time. The route was clearly marked and there were many event staff on site to ensure no one got lost. A water station at the mid point might have been a nice touch. 

The food after was great. Lots of pizza, salad and snacks for everyone! I even won a beer on the dance floor. I would do this run again!   Carol  2016


What a way to ring in the New Year!     I was nervous about doing this run because I thought I might get lost or be way too slow but that wasn't the case at all. The route was well marked and people of all fitness levels were running.    The organizers and volunteers were great, they worked so hard and seemed to be having a great time. 

It was really nice crowed of people and I'm looking forward to beating my time next year. - 2016 Attendee  (L.J.)
