As one of Somerset County’s premier road races, Hillsborough YMCA Hop 5K brings families and the community together in a fun race that encourages everyone to strive for and reach a personal fitness goal.
Hillsborough YMCA is pleased to sponsor the event which has continued to grow over the past 15 years and has become a fun, spring fitness tradition in the Hillsborough community. The event raises funds that help Hillsborough YMCA fulfill its mission to keep programs and services available to all, regardless of income.
Last year, a record-breaking 1,357 racers came out on Saturday, May 30, to support the Y in this certified run that takes place on a NJ USATF-sanctioned course.
This year, the Hillsborough Hop 5K will be the kick-off even for the Healthy Hillsborough, a day to celebrate healthy living in the community. Once again, the race will begin at Hillsborough YMCA and end at the Hillsborough municipal building, where a Health Fair will begin at 9am.
