The race is on, Mercer County!

This is such a perfect way to get some exercise and also get involved in the community. I just started taking working out really seriously and my first goal is to be able to run a 5K within the next 2 months.

This is such a good cause for my first one, also! I saw a sign on Eggert's Crossing Road in Lawrence Township that was advertising this 5K run (or walk) that’s happening really soon. It’s called the Homefront Halloween 5K and it’s all going down right in Princeton, New Jersey!


How can I register for the Homefront Halloween 5K in Princeton, NJ?

It’s so easy to register! There’s an entire website dedicated to the run with all of the pricing and information. There are options for running in person with all of the Halloween-themed excitement or you can run it virtually!


Is there an age requirement for the Homefront Halloween 5K in Princeton, NJ?

There’s no age requirement for the race. As a matter of fact, bringing your children is encouraged! There is a race starting at 9 am which is solely for children! It’s called the Preschooler 100-Yard Pumpkin Dash!

Costumes are encouraged for this super fun, Halloween-themed race that’s perfect to get your family up and active!
