Whippany Fire 5K Coming in May

Whippany Fire is proud to announce their annual 5k race on May 3rd. It’s time once again to hit the ground running with the Whippany Fire Company as we bring to you our 6th annual 5k run/walk! We want you to get off the couch and come run with us so we’ve expanded our event with a 1 mile fun run before the 5k, so no matter your fitness level, we’ve got something for you!  This year’s theme is Superheroes for those superheroes out there, come in costume!  There is also a category for Firefighters running their gear (no SCBA).

Proceeds from the race will go towards the Whippany Fire Scholarship Fund, an award given to 4 Whippany Park High School students each year.

Come out, support the students in our community, and get yourself just a bit healthier!

The one mile fun run starts at 8 a.m. and the 5k run/walk starts at 8:30 a.m.

This race is sanctioned and a Grand Prix worth 500 pts.
