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.

Met and trained with a great group of beginners to accomplish my goal of finishing the 5 k . Look forward to next year's race and hopefully a few in between.

I have struggled finding the results for the race. When I clicked on the site it said I wasn't authorized to view. I wanted to see how I did in comparison to my friends. Course was wonderful as always. Well marked. Volunteers were very nice. Felt safe with the paramedics all around the course. Friendly vendors at the end. The race was outstanding. Website, a little below what I was expecting. Bag pick up was quick and efficient. Can't wait till next year.

This is my 9th year running this 5k. It is the most efficiently tun 5k that I have ever run. I enjoy the time before and after the race talking with friends from around town. The race gets a lot of Waldwick residents to run so it's a good way to meet people or catch up with skme folks outside of your normal circle of friends. The race needs School of Rock to set up a second band in the gazebo. They have been there in past years but not consistently.

This was my first 5k and I felt the atomosphere was fun and motivating. I especially enjoyed and benefitted from the B2W5K training group. As a beginner and someone who hasn't run in a very long time I was able to learn strategies to build endurance, etc. that will help me with future races.

Well organized local race. The signs throughout the course are great. My only complaint is my time. I was hoping to hear that the course was long to explain my extra 40 seconds. Plan to return next year if I am still healthy enough to compete.

This is a very organized race. Great communication and amenities pre and post race. I love the new course. My only criticism...make it a true chip race. I would love a timing pad at the start. Also, here were better/more placing prizes in prior years. Looking forward to the 12th race next year.

I've run in the Waldwick Chamber 5K for several years now and it never disappoints. Despite the rainy day, the event was special. The energy and enthusiasm was contagious. The atmosphere was invigorating from the start with the singing of Proud to be an American and the Star Spangled banner by a talented young lady. The event is dedicated to local fallen heroes from the the marines and police department. Touching, moving and a great run.

I started this with zero experience. From day 1 Mary and Stan made me feel I can definitely do this. Their trainings were detailed and manageable. It was all about having fun and you can tell they wanted you to love running as much as they do. Would highly recommend!

Stan does an amazing job putting this event together every year. This is a top tier road race in bergen county and one not to miss. The awards, swag bag, organization, etc. was all top notch. My only concern is the change to the course which added a second 180 degree turnaround. The course also came up a bit long compared to last year. I prefer the old course without the extra turnaround. Other than that the course was is very nice, especially with the track finish!

I was on the fence about running since it was raining but I'm glad I did. The race course while not very pretty was fairly flat. And I really enjoyed reading the motivational signs. I didn't really hang around afterwards due to the weather but I thought the school of rock band was a great touch and sounded AMAZING! I had a lot of fun!

It was my first year running this race. I've been a spectator a few times in the past. Stan does a great job organizing it and an outstanding job on race day! Great atmosphere and the number of people cheering us on along the way kept me going. A special touch having the entire Waldwick HS girls softball team handing out water in the park was so nice! I'll be back running next year for sure!!

More Love for the Walkers - by , 05/06/2018
4/ 4stars
I am not a runner, but I am an experienced and very fast walker (13 - 15 minute pace per mile). I think the mile was fun, but too short. I think having the option to walk the full 5k would be great, but the information on the race did not seem like it was an option. Signage at the registration booth was not clear about where to get your packet if you're a walker. Otherwise, I thought the 5K was well organized and a very fun event.

First Time 5K Runner - by , 05/06/2018

This was my first time running, let alone running a 5K. I signed up for the training program put on by Marybeth Connolly and it was really excellent. Stan Kowlaski was also so supportive and encouraging. It was a great first experience. The race was pretty difficult for me as a non-runner, but I am proud to have stuck with the training and am hopeful to keep running after this. I look forward to running the 5K next year!

Really well run race! Loved the motivational signs along the course, easy packet pick up and medal pick up after the race so not all runners had to wait for awards. Would prefer a slightly more expanded course with less double backs (this was the only tedious part of the race, especially in the rain). First half of the course was my favorite part.

This race is always set up perfect. All signage from parking to race course is clearly marked and viable. There are a lot of added touches to make the race have some what of a personal touch. The course is a little bit of a challenge but just enough to push you and not to much to want to make you give up. I look forward to this race every year and use it as motivation to get my but going for the rest of the year.

My first race in over 30 years and it was enjoyable. Very well organized. Nice to be able to register the day before. Only complaint is that I don't fit the body mold of a typical runner and would have been nice to XXL T-shirt size available, at least for pre-registrants.

I've been a sponsor and volunteer for this race for many years. As tired as I get from all the time put in including a very early day of wake up, it is always extremely rewarding. Runners get a great scenic route on the street through the park and past a lake ending on the school track. Vendors get an amazing day with the community out to support. 2016 was pouring and we still had people signing up that day to run. And best of all the profits from the run support great volunteer organizations in the community. All of this is possible because of a great team of volunteers and especially our race director. He is a runner himself and is always gathering tips from other races he participates in. Thank you to all that ran. Thank you to all of our sponsors for helping make the event possible. And thank you to the Waldwick Chamber, the 5k Committee and Race Director Stan K. Ten years strong and still running.

First non-obstacle course 5K for me. I trained for it with the Couch to 5K program and feel that the program really got me ready for the race. I thought it was a challenge being my first race with all the hills but overall I thought it was a great experience, left me wanting to run more. Little disappointed in the quality of the t-shirt provided and no medal.
GOOD FAMILY FRIENDLY RACE - by , 05/11/2017

Organization was OK, but race should be more promoted. * It would be nice to have marked specific points where runners previously know there would be a photographer, then it would be more fun for all. * At the race there were many teams or families with their own T-shirts, it would be nicer if you can offer the official T-shirt but added our own family or Team name (understood price will be higher for these T-shirts). * Some kind of discount (incentive) when you registry to all your family or Team. * The fun signs placed along the track should be carefully analyzed on where they should be placed (at the beginning, middle or end the track) some signs did not motivate at all to some runners. Thanks.

This was the fourth year my husband and I attended, doing the walk and the 5k. The 5k is a nice run with some inclines and nice scenery. There are Fun signs to keep you motivated and live music at certain points in the race. Every year we look forward to the t shirt, wondering what color it will be, quality and fit are great. The vendors are always great and there is a good selection of snacks and entertainment. Overall we love this local event and look forward to it next year. Overall value is good for tshirt, event activities and supporting the local community.

I think I've run the race 4 times now. Positives: Easy to get to, plenty of nearby parking, organized, fun course signage. Course is challenging enough without being too much although for a brand new runner may be a bit of a challenge. Negatives: $35 for a 5k is a lot. No medal. Non-tech shirt.

Dedication ceremonies should be moved to the football field so that business can continue to be conducted if people so choose without all the rude hushes. Dedication ceremonies shouldn't be mandated on everyone anyway and it's disrupting to those interested in the ceremonies to deah with all the people yeling for folks to "be quiet" or shushing that goes on.

The only issue I had with the race was the singing or cadence from the police academy cadets. I found this to be annoying as I couldn't hear the music on my iPod which is what I use for motivation. I paid an entry fee and feel I shouldn't be forced to listen to this through the course of the race.

All in all, this is a great race. I have done it 3 of the last 4 years. The only thing that I would like added is a strip to add to the starting line to measure chip time. A few of my friends were a little bummed that that being in the back starting with our family made our official time suffer a bit, but that's cosmetic. Overall its a great 5k.

I have done a lot of road races over the years, and this one is definitely one of the most well organized events. No rock was left unturned. The course was well marked with a lead car, arrows at every turn (and there are lots of turns!), cones closing the course to traffic, signs of positive encouragement (and a few funny ones!) along the course, and support from the town all over the place! You also get to enjoy something that usually only high-profile track meets get: an on-the-track finish and a dj/mc making announcements as the runners finish the race. I have no complaints about this event, and I will definitely be back next year. Well done! The awards are also top notch. The medals are extremely unique, and prize money is available for competitive runners.

I moved to Waldwick in 2016, so the first time I ran the Waldwick 5K was this year (2017). I was so impressed with how amazing of an event it was, especially because Waldwick is such a small town. You could really feel the sense of community and pride. I've never been to a better local race!

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. When I got to the finish line half of the post race people had left or were packing. The hot dog event was not very well run. We walked to it and got one hot dog and watched the dept. stand around chatting. Race great. Post race not impressive if you are a beginner or not a small shirt size. Disappointing for such a great cause.

I loved everything about the race with the exception of the shirts. I still liked them and will be wearing it around, but the last 2 years the race shirt has been made out of different material than than the 2014 and 2015 shirts, which I absolutely loved. Thank you again for putting on yet another year of a great run

Always a good race. Only marked thumbs down for the shirts because I thought they were very dull - green looked faded. Also some of the items given out were expired.

Where are we going? - by , 05/08/2017

I was never aware of a race course posted ahead of time. I would have like the opportunity to envision my route before I ran it, anticipating turns and distances. But it wasn't available on the website, the sign-up site, or the friendly day-before email with registration information. The course itself was tricky. There were very few long stretches which, on one hand, was good to have the scene changed up frequently, but on the other hand, I felt like I didn't know where I was going at any time. Separately, there was only one timer available at a mile marker (number 1) and with the position of the timer and sunshine, you couldn't see the numbers (or maybe it wasn't working?). Slightly frustrating if you were trying to keep track of your mile splits. In the same vein, was there even an official chip start location? There was definitely a chip ending location, but I didn't step over anything at the beginning to start my chip time, which meant I believe it was a few seconds slow. A few seconds is not a lot in the grand scheme of things for me or most people, but if I were a USATF member and had to make a certain time to qualify for something, I'd be frustrated.

Fantastic day, great support, all the items checked off for a race day, even with the breeze. I enjoyed everything about the day, except the distribution of Age group medals. The medal itself is creative & unique, however the method of two people holding the results, checking names& then going to get the medal seemed silly and inefficient. I was fine to not get called up, I would suggest an alternate plan for next year that makes use of the bounty of volunteers. As I said a great day, but something to for next year.
Waldwick 5k Awards - by , 05/08/2017
3/ 3stars
There was no awards ceremony for age groupers, just a simple announcement to come up to the table if you THINK you are receiving an award. They covered the overall winners, but even that was not ceremonious. There was a "line" (mob) that everyone attempted to file in to get their (possible) awards. I don't enjoy waiting around for every age group to be announced every time, but I'd rather that than the insanity that went on. The poor people handing out awards looked beyond overwhelmed. They did a fantastic job, but this definitely could have and should have been done differently.

I've never run in a 5K or any other race. The Waldwick 5K was my first and I could not have been more pleased with my experience. It is a well organized event and even though there was a large turnout, I never felt like i was lost in the crowd from start to finish. It was a nice course with a mix of residential and park but what I remember most are the people throughout the course cheering us on. It was a great event for anyone but especially for me running in my first 5K.

Thank you for participating in the Waldwick 5K Run and for your positive reviews. I could not agree with you more about the poor condition of West Prospect Street. This was the main reson for changing course. I have been assured that both West Prospect and Maple Street will be paved this year. We look forwrad to seeing you on May 5th 2019 for the 12th Annual Waldwick 5K Run

I have struggled finding the results for the race. When I clicked on the site it said I wasn't authorized to view. I wanted to see how I did in comparison to my friends. Course was wonderful as always. Well marked. Volunteers were very nice. Felt safe with the paramedics all around the course. Friendly vendors at the end. The race was outstanding. Website, a little below what I was expecting. Bag pick up was quick and efficient. Can't wait till next year.

This is my 9th year running this 5k. It is the most efficiently tun 5k that I have ever run. I enjoy the time before and after the race talking with friends from around town. The race gets a lot of Waldwick residents to run so it's a good way to meet people or catch up with skme folks outside of your normal circle of friends.

The race needs School of Rock to set up a second band in the gazebo. They have been there in past years but not consistently.

This was my first 5k and I felt the atomosphere was fun and motivating. I especially enjoyed and benefitted from the B2W5K training group. As a beginner and someone who hasn't run in a very long time I was able to learn strategies to build endurance, etc. that will help me with future races.

Thank you for your positive comments regarding the W5K Run. Everyone seems to love the motivational signs. Last count there were close to 40 signs along the course. We look forwrad to you joining us next year for our 12th Annual W5K Run and shaving off those 40 extra seconds off your finishing time.

This is a very organized race. Great communication and amenities pre and post race.
I love the new course.
My only criticism...make it a true chip race. I would love a timing pad at the start. Also, here were better/more placing prizes in prior years.
Looking forward to the 12th race next year.

I've run in the Waldwick Chamber 5K for several years now and it never disappoints. Despite the rainy day, the event was special. The energy and enthusiasm was contagious. The atmosphere was invigorating from the start with the singing of Proud to be an American and the Star Spangled banner by a talented young lady. The event is dedicated to local fallen heroes from the the marines and police department. Touching, moving and a great run.

I started this with zero experience. From day 1 Mary and Stan made me feel I can definitely do this. Their trainings were detailed and manageable. It was all about having fun and you can tell they wanted you to love running as much as they do. Would highly recommend!

Stan does an amazing job putting this event together every year. This is a top tier road race in bergen county and one not to miss. The awards, swag bag, organization, etc. was all top notch. My only concern is the change to the course which added a second 180 degree turnaround. The course also came up a bit long compared to last year. I prefer the old course without the extra turnaround. Other than that the course was is very nice, especially with the track finish!

Stan Kowalski, Race Director of the Waldwick Chamber of Commerce 5K, responded to this review

W5K Participant,
Thank you for your kind words and for supporting the Waldwick 5K Run. The second 180 degree turn was added when we changed the course to avoid Prospect St which is undergoing construction and was not deemed safe for the runners. We now have two 5K certified courses. In the next few weeks I will be sending out another survey to all 5K Runners to see which course they prefer. A decision will be made based on our Committee and comments from runners as to which course we will use next year, the old or the new course. We look forward to seeing you next year, tentative date 5/5/19 Cinco da Mayo!

Cheers,
Stan

I was on the fence about running since it was raining but I'm glad I did. The race course while not very pretty was fairly flat. And I really enjoyed reading the motivational signs. I didn't really hang around afterwards due to the weather but I thought the school of rock band was a great touch and sounded AMAZING! I had a lot of fun!

It was my first year running this race. I've been a spectator a few times in the past. Stan does a great job organizing it and an outstanding job on race day! Great atmosphere and the number of people cheering us on along the way kept me going. A special touch having the entire Waldwick HS girls softball team handing out water in the park was so nice! I'll be back running next year for sure!!

I am not a runner, but I am an experienced and very fast walker (13 - 15 minute pace per mile). I think the mile was fun, but too short. I think having the option to walk the full 5k would be great, but the information on the race did not seem like it was an option. Signage at the registration booth was not clear about where to get your packet if you're a walker. Otherwise, I thought the 5K was well organized and a very fun event.

This was my first time running, let alone running a 5K. I signed up for the training program put on by Marybeth Connolly and it was really excellent. Stan Kowlaski was also so supportive and encouraging. It was a great first experience. The race was pretty difficult for me as a non-runner, but I am proud to have stuck with the training and am hopeful to keep running after this. I look forward to running the 5K next year!

Really well run race! Loved the motivational signs along the course, easy packet pick up and medal pick up after the race so not all runners had to wait for awards. Would prefer a slightly more expanded course with less double backs (this was the only tedious part of the race, especially in the rain). First half of the course was my favorite part.

This race is always set up perfect. All signage from parking to race course is clearly marked and viable.
There are a lot of added touches to make the race have some what of a personal touch. The course is a little bit of a challenge but just enough to push you and not to much to want to make you give up.
I look forward to this race every year and use it as motivation to get my but going for the rest of the year.

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.

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

My first race in over 30 years and it was enjoyable. Very well organized. Nice to be able to register the day before. Only complaint is that I don't fit the body mold of a typical runner and would have been nice to XXL T-shirt size available, at least for pre-registrants.

I've been a sponsor and volunteer for this race for many years. As tired as I get from all the time put in including a very early day of wake up, it is always extremely rewarding. Runners get a great scenic route on the street through the park and past a lake ending on the school track. Vendors get an amazing day with the community out to support. 2016 was pouring and we still had people signing up that day to run. And best of all the profits from the run support great volunteer organizations in the community. All of this is possible because of a great team of volunteers and especially our race director. He is a runner himself and is always gathering tips from other races he participates in. Thank you to all that ran. Thank you to all of our sponsors for helping make the event possible. And thank you to the Waldwick Chamber, the 5k Committee and Race Director Stan K. Ten years strong and still running.

First non-obstacle course 5K for me. I trained for it with the Couch to 5K program and feel that the program really got me ready for the race. I thought it was a challenge being my first race with all the hills but overall I thought it was a great experience, left me wanting to run more. Little disappointed in the quality of the t-shirt provided and no medal.

Organization was OK, but race should be more promoted.
* It would be nice to have marked specific points where runners previously know there would be a photographer, then it would be more fun for all.
* At the race there were many teams or families with their own T-shirts, it would be nicer if you can offer the official T-shirt but added our own family or Team name (understood price will be higher for these T-shirts).
* Some kind of discount (incentive) when you registry to all your family or Team.
* The fun signs placed along the track should be carefully analyzed on where they should be placed (at the beginning, middle or end the track) some signs did not motivate at all to some runners.
Thanks.

Thank you for supporting our event and taking the time out to review the Waldwick Chamber of Commerce 5K Run. We do appreciate your positive comments. There is a group discount for 5 or more entries of $3.00 on paper registration only. Just enter the name of the group in the box on the registration form. We also offer a $3.00 discount to active USATF members. We actually sent out an email blast Black Friday to Cyber Monday $5.00 discount for this weekend. Hope you received it.
Our race was heavily promoted on numerous websites, posters, and banners, signs, and it was even on the Rte17 Northbound highway digital billboard in Maywood for a month.
Our event photographer volunteers his time and tries to capture both candid and action shots. He usually takes over 500 pictures which can be viewed at http://www.dlbattlephotography.com/5K-Run-2017/
We also had another photographer at the finish line taking pictures. A number of these pictures can be viewed on Runsignup.com
when you search results. Look forward to seeing you all on May 6th, 2018.

Keep on Running!
Stan

This was the fourth year my husband and I attended, doing the walk and the 5k. The 5k is a nice run with some inclines and nice scenery. There are Fun signs to keep you motivated and live music at certain points in the race. Every year we look forward to the t shirt, wondering what color it will be, quality and fit are great. The vendors are always great and there is a good selection of snacks and entertainment. Overall we love this local event and look forward to it next year. Overall value is good for tshirt, event activities and supporting the local community.

I think I've run the race 4 times now. Positives: Easy to get to, plenty of nearby parking, organized, fun course signage. Course is challenging enough without being too much although for a brand new runner may be a bit of a challenge. Negatives: $35 for a 5k is a lot. No medal. Non-tech shirt.

Dedication ceremonies should be moved to the football field so that business can continue to be conducted if people so choose without all the rude hushes. Dedication ceremonies shouldn't be mandated on everyone anyway and it's disrupting to those interested in the ceremonies to deah with all the people yeling for folks to "be quiet" or shushing that goes on.

This race was organized down to many fine details including:
Bagpipes
Colors
Police Academy running
Prerace acknowledgments and singing of national anthem by teen winner of community award
FINISH ON A RACE TRACK
Beautiful and fitting race shirts
AWESOME swag bag
Great community spirit for the entirety of the event, including warm up and post goodies
Wonderful, well marked and scenic course, including support, a band and rare motivational signage
Easy access to race site and plentiful parking
Instant results
The race director is to be commended for 10 years of awesomeness in staging this event! He didn't hog the kudos; he graciously led the sharing and input of expertise and experience of the community, and this kind of teamwork efforts produced an extraordinary event and day.

The only issue I had with the race was the singing or cadence from the police academy cadets. I found this to be annoying as I couldn't hear the music on my iPod which is what I use for motivation. I paid an entry fee and feel I shouldn't be forced to listen to this through the course of the race.

All in all, this is a great race. I have done it 3 of the last 4 years. The only thing that I would like added is a strip to add to the starting line to measure chip time. A few of my friends were a little bummed that that being in the back starting with our family made our official time suffer a bit, but that's cosmetic. Overall its a great 5k.

Organized and promoted well. Would have loved to see a chip time along with the clock time for the those in the back of the crowd at the starting line. And some way to differentiate those running and those walking. Other than that, thoroughly enjoyed the event, and plan on doing it annually. Thanks to all involved!

Great experience from beginning to end. Registration online was easy,badge pick up was the day before and went smoothly. All the volunteers were friendly. On Race day it was a great atmosphere. I've run the course before so I knew what to expect, a supportive crowd along the way. I love the signs along the way with witty and encouraging messages. Great atmosphere at the finish as well.

The race was well-organized and I enjoyed the inspirational and funny signs along the route. The only downside was the awards ceremony. The age group awards were not announced and the recipients had to stand on a very long and unorganized line to get their awards.

It was a nice race. I am a Waldwick resident and I appreciate the hometown support. I love the motivational signs. I didn't have the opportunity for the party in Borough Park sponsored by the Firefighters. However, I think it was a terrific idea. Hopefully, next year I will participate.

I have done a lot of road races over the years, and this one is definitely one of the most well organized events. No rock was left unturned. The course was well marked with a lead car, arrows at every turn (and there are lots of turns!), cones closing the course to traffic, signs of positive encouragement (and a few funny ones!) along the course, and support from the town all over the place! You also get to enjoy something that usually only high-profile track meets get: an on-the-track finish and a dj/mc making announcements as the runners finish the race. I have no complaints about this event, and I will definitely be back next year. Well done! The awards are also top notch. The medals are extremely unique, and prize money is available for competitive runners.

The only thing I can say that was a negative for me was that it was hard to get through the crowd in the beginning. It cost me time. Maybe staggering start times would help.

I moved to Waldwick in 2016, so the first time I ran the Waldwick 5K was this year (2017). I was so impressed with how amazing of an event it was, especially because Waldwick is such a small town. You could really feel the sense of community and pride. I've never been to a better local race!

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. When I got to the finish line half of the post race people had left or were packing. The hot dog event was not very well run. We walked to it and got one hot dog and watched the dept. stand around chatting. Race great. Post race not impressive if you are a beginner or not a small shirt size. Disappointing for such a great cause.

I loved everything about the race with the exception of the shirts. I still liked them and will be wearing it around, but the last 2 years the race shirt has been made out of different material than than the 2014 and 2015 shirts, which I absolutely loved. Thank you again for putting on yet another year of a great run

I was never aware of a race course posted ahead of time. I would have like the opportunity to envision my route before I ran it, anticipating turns and distances. But it wasn't available on the website, the sign-up site, or the friendly day-before email with registration information. The course itself was tricky. There were very few long stretches which, on one hand, was good to have the scene changed up frequently, but on the other hand, I felt like I didn't know where I was going at any time.

Separately, there was only one timer available at a mile marker (number 1) and with the position of the timer and sunshine, you couldn't see the numbers (or maybe it wasn't working?). Slightly frustrating if you were trying to keep track of your mile splits. In the same vein, was there even an official chip start location? There was definitely a chip ending location, but I didn't step over anything at the beginning to start my chip time, which meant I believe it was a few seconds slow. A few seconds is not a lot in the grand scheme of things for me or most people, but if I were a USATF member and had to make a certain time to qualify for something, I'd be frustrated.

My only comment( and I don't have a solution) I know it's a family event but I was nearly taken down 3-4 times by little kids running wild! That's it other wise I had a wonderful time!

Fantastic day, great support, all the items checked off for a race day, even with the breeze. I enjoyed everything about the day, except the distribution of Age group medals. The medal itself is creative & unique, however the method of two people holding the results, checking names& then going to get the medal seemed silly and inefficient. I was fine to not get called up, I would suggest an alternate plan for next year that makes use of the bounty of volunteers. As I said a great day, but something to for next year.

There was no awards ceremony for age groupers, just a simple announcement to come up to the table if you THINK you are receiving an award. They covered the overall winners, but even that was not ceremonious. There was a "line" (mob) that everyone attempted to file in to get their (possible) awards. I don't enjoy waiting around for every age group to be announced every time, but I'd rather that than the insanity that went on. The poor people handing out awards looked beyond overwhelmed. They did a fantastic job, but this definitely could have and should have been done differently.

I've never run in a 5K or any other race. The Waldwick 5K was my first and I could not have been more pleased with my experience. It is a well organized event and even though there was a large turnout, I never felt like i was lost in the crowd from start to finish. It was a nice course with a mix of residential and park but what I remember most are the people throughout the course cheering us on. It was a great event for anyone but especially for me running in my first 5K.
