"I live in Waldwick and can 'walk' to the 5K run. The event is well run and super fun. I am a fan of the bag check. It's a feature not seen too often. The race course is sprinkled with inspirational and humorous signs. Lots of people and organizations cheer the runners on. As I participate each year, I am reminded of the benefits of living in a small town. I know a lot of the participants and organizers. I am familiar with the worthy, local charities supported by the run."
Nice race a little back & forth on the same street though. Didn't like that you went up to a tent to get your own metal & it wasn't announced to get it.
Something needs to be done about the start. There was no gun, no loud announcement, nothing you could hear in the middle of the pack.
The signs along the course were great.
5K Run Participant,
Thank you for supporting the Waldwick 5K Run. We're happy you enjoyed the event and our motivational signs along the course. After reading your review, I did check with a few runners who were located in the middle and back of the pack and said they had no issues hearing our announcements or the start of the race. A bullhorn with a loud siren as well as a horns and whistles from our Fire Truck were used to start the race followed by Bruce Springsteen blasting Born to Run. Maybe the PA system was not loud enough but I will look into that next year.
Hope to see you for our 12th Annual Waldwick 5K Run Tentative date 5/5/19
The race route was good. The cons were pre pick-up of bibs. Apparently till 6 means till 5:45. Something to be aware of. Shirt sizes available. I had to get a shirt size that was two sizes to small because it was the largest available. More...
