Gym bags can be checked at the Bag Check Tent. Each Race participant (with a Race Bib and number) may check one personal/gym bag and one additional bag with items collected at the event (‘goodie bag’). Not responsible for lost or stolen items.
For the safety of all participants, inline skates and pets are discouraged from participating in this event. Thank you for your cooperation. Strollers are allowed in the run only with a "jogging" stroller. All strollers are allowed in the walk.
This event will occur rain or shine. We reserve the right to cancel in extreme circumstances. In that event, there will be no refunds; rather, your entry fee will be used as a donation to the Susan G. Komen Central and South Jersey Race for the Cure.
Race Day Activities
As you walk or run, check out the educational fact signs provided by Bloomberg. The Race is a fun day, but we want every participant to know a little more about breast health before the day is over.
A Tribute to Breast Cancer Survivors
All Breast Cancer Survivors are invited to complimentary breakfast and will receive special gifts. We invite all participants to recognize those special people who have been touched by breast cancer. Click here to find out more information.
The Art Expression Tent Sponsored by Meridian Cancer Care
Race participants will have the opportunity to join as a community on an art project. The project will reflect feelings about breast cancer. The beautiful completed art piece will be displayed at prominent locations year-round in Central and South Jersey. The piece will help promote breast cancer awareness.
Race participants will also be able to give video testimonials. Honor a survivor, remember a loved one, or just talk about your Race Day experience. Videos will be shown throughout the year at affiliate and Merdian events.
