 Tenth Anniversary of the Highland Park 5k Race & Superhero Kids Races

 Join Main Street Highland Park for a full day of fun starting with the TENTH annual Run in the Park 5k on Sunday May 6 at 9:00 am. The race starts next to Highland Park High School, and then winds its way through the historic streets of Highland Park before finishing behind the High School on the track. Visit http://runinthepark.org/ to check out the  course, register online, and check out sponsorship opportunities – and check out the fabulous 10th Anniversary T-shirts.

Following the 5k, refreshments will be available in the finish area. At 10am there will be Superhero Kids Races, sponsored by Yellow Brick Road preschool, on the high school track. Kids’ race entrants will also receive a t-shirt and refreshments. Race proceeds will benefit the Borough of Highland Park Police, Fire, First Aid, Library, Main Street, and Recreation Department.
