Scotch Plains Mayor’s 0.5k Race – The Anti-5K @ Stage House Tavern | Scotch Plains | New Jersey | United States

See website for time.

Grab your couch potato-loving friends on Sunday, August 18th and join Scotch Plains Mayor Al Smith in our 2nd Annual Scotch Plains 0.5k Race!

Beginning in Town Center, with a shotgun start (ok not a real shotgun – there are laws) the “race” will take you in a 547-yard circle. Go too fast and you are sure to get dizzy! But don’t drag your feet, a pint of beer courtesy of Stage House Tavern (obvious age restrictions apply) or a cup of ice cream from Mr. Softee await you at the finish line.

Proceeds to benefits the METAvivors of NJ chapter of the national organization of METAvivor. This nonprofit supports men and woman battling Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer.
