Anyone who follows us knows we really love three things:
3. The Hoboken Homeless Shelter
So, naturally, when we were approached by our friend at the shelter to help out and take over the Scary Scurry, we jumped at the opportunity!
For anyone who is new to Hoboken or just never knew this existed, the Scary Scurry is the kids' race portion of the HoBOOken 5K. The HoBOOken 5K is a charity 5K where everyone wears costumes and runs to benefit the shelter. There's a DJ, tees, goodies and more! But, the little ones want to run too! So, the Scary Scurry was born! They have different "heats" which are from ages 2-9 and honestly, it's the cutest thing ever! (Imagine your little pumpkin or bunny jogging down Pier A!) This year, the warm-up and actual race pacing will be lead by the team from The Inner Athlete.
There will be musical entertainment for the kiddos from Preschool of Rock.
All runners receive a t-shirt, a bib with a number just like the grown-ups, and the first 300 to show up and register get a goodie bag with lots of fun stuff from local and national businesses! ALL PROCEEDS GO TO HELPING THE SHELTER!!!
This takes place AFTER the adult race, so you can run and then bring the littles by to do the same!
