This virtual race can be done wherever you’d like, so grab your sneakers or lifejacket and head out to your favorite New Jersey trail, park, or beach!

VALIDATE COMPLETION OF THE RACE TO WIN PRIZES
Participants will receive their race bib electronically on April 30th to be printed and worn while completing their race. We encourage you to share a picture of you wearing the bib on Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter with #5K4Tomorrow so we can see your race participation! Once finished, you’ll send us an image of the completed 5K as reflected on your favorite fitness app. While all participants who send proof of completion receive a certificate, prizes will be awarded for the best time in each race (running, walking, and paddling) for those 14 and under, as well as 15 and over.
This race is being made possible by TIAA and NJM Insurance Group. This virtual race is for a greener future. All proceeds from the 5K For Tomorrow benefit the environmental 501(c)3 nonprofit members of EarthShare New Jersey. These organizations work hard to preserve the open spaces we all get to enjoy throughout the state. We hope to see you out on their trails and waterways in support of these environmental treasures for the 5K For Tomorrow!
