2020 Alliance 5K Color Run
October 4 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am$10.00
The 5K Alliance Race is sponsored by Municipal Alliance (A grant funded through the Governor’s Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse). We are raising the funds needed to host events to educate and advocate for addiction and abuse. The event will be geared towards the communities of Wharton, Rockaway Township, Rockaway Borough and Denville.
This is our 6th year holding this community event. The great time had by our sending district communities is so amazing. The monies we raise from the run each year helps to pay for guest speakers educating both children and parents on issues like drug and alcohol addiction, cyber safety and human trafficking, gangs and suicide awareness. We hold Narcan trainings for our residents, alcohol serving trainings for our bars and restaurants, we participate each year with the Pinwheel Project and offer scholarships at the middle school and high school level for students who choose to live drug and alcohol free. We have many community programs each year from dances, movie nights, trips, laser tag, a carnival and of course the 5K Color Run. All of these events are “Natural High” events that we feel strongly help promote the fact that there is fun and awareness within your community that does not have to involve substances.
The 5K race in Wharton is a USATF (USA Track & Field) certified course.
The race start and finish will be at the Alfred MacKinnon Middle School located at 137 E. Central Ave., Wharton, NJ 07885. Parking will be in the back of the school.
