Wondering what a virtual 5K is? To respect proper safety guidelines and keep our community safe, HoBOOken is offering a virtual race option.

What does that mean? A virtual run is a race you can complete anywhere in the world! You choose how, when and where you want to complete the distance. You can walk, run on a treadmill, ride your bike outside, or move in another way. A virtual race allows people of all ages, speeds and abilities to compete without time restrictions and large crowds at traditional races.

The HoBOOken 5K is 3.1 miles and can be completed any time between October 30 - November 6, 2021. And most importantly, the HoBOOken 5K is the largest yearly fundraising event for the the Hoboken Shelter and 100% of the proceeds go to this amazing organization. The Shelter has been on the front lines during the pandemic and has suffered increased budget costs and loss of revenue from the recent events.

Sign up for the 5K today, help us raise money for this vital institution and have a great run!
