This event honors the memory of Helene Cody, who passed away from a brain aneurysm on her 16th birthday in 2008. Helene had planned to revive the Cranbury Day 5K that had been previously discontinued as a way to combine her love of distance running and community service. Her classmate hosted the first Helene Cody Cranbury 5K after her passing in 2008, and ever since, the Helene Cody Foundation has used the race to bring the community together and fund youth service projects and scholarships.
Register by September 7th to receive a $5 discount on registration and to make sure you receive a custom reusable water bottle! Water will be given to registrants while supplies last for those who register after Sept. 7.
Packet pickup night is on Wednesday, September 7th at the Princeton Running Company from 6-8 PM. Those who have preregistered may pick up their water bottle and race bib at this event to avoid the lines on race day. You may also fill out a paper registration form here (cash or check only)! September 7th is the last day to receive the discounted registration fee of $20 for the 1 Mile Fun Run / $25 for the 5K and to ensure that you receive a water bottle.
You may still register the morning of the race at Heritage Park in Cranbury (cash, check, PayPal). Please note that water bottles are not guaranteed for those who register on race day! 1 Mile: $25, registration from 7:30-8:00 AM. 5K: $30, registration from 7:30-8:30 AM.
All proceeds go to the Helene Cody Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity with the mission of inspiring youth to volunteer, to better their communities and themselves. Your donations will support youth-led projects benefiting Central NJ.
