         Running with the Balloons 5K

          Our fun, flat, fast, low-impact USATF-NJ certified 5K course features a mix of surfaces including pavement, gravel, dirt road, and grass. Add to this the spectacle of over 100 hot-air balloons taking off in a grand mass ascension and you have the most unique 5K in the country. Join nearly 1,000 runners as the course leads right past the balloon launch area, finishing in the heart of the festival. In keeping with the Festival’s belief in “doing well by doing good,” a portion of the proceeds benefit the Girls on the Run®, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
