The race, which takes runners through the streets of Bordentown City, is an annual event hosted by the Bordentown Education Foundation. The proceeds of the race will go to helping teachers buy learning equipment as well as funding scholarships for students.
Runners in the 5k will be fitted with a radio-frequency identification chip that will acutely calculate when the runner begins and when he crosses the finish line.
In person signups are set to begin at 7 a.m. April 11, the day of the race, at Clara Barton Elementary School. The 5k race is set to begin at 9 a.m., with the Family Fun Walk starting at 10. Registration for the 5k cost $25; for the walk, the cost is $20 for adults and $10 for children.
