{UPDATED} Five 5Ks in Northern Bergen County to Check Out this Fall

By Angeline Sheridan September 25, 2017

I recently took up running again, thanks to the lovely ladies at Fit4Mom Bergen Running Club, which provides an 8-week training program for new and experienced runners. So far, I am enjoying the workouts which is leading up to a 5K/10K we all do at the end of October in New Milford. Wish us luck!

For those who enjoy running and/or are training for the New York Marathon, now is a beautiful time of year to take advantage of a number of local 5Ks and support the local community. Here are Macaroni Kid's Top Picks in the area:
