We’d like to invite the entire Lakewood Community to join us at the Start Line to wave the runners on!
Show them your support! Their hard work and dedication to The Center is tremendous!

Hope to see you at 5:45 at The Town Square!
Onlookers are welcome along the route to wave the runners on but not on bikes.
BIKES are NOT allowed along the route.
Bikers are extremely distracting and cause a serious safety concern to the runners.
All bystanders must stay off the road.
We’d like to express our feeling of gratitude to The Lakewood Township Committee, The Lakewood Police Department and Lakewood Chaveirim for orchestrating the logistics with the safety of the runners and all the residents of Lakewood in mind!
