Pretzel City is timing two 5ks this Sat, BOTH which qualify for our MEGA-EASY-AWARD alert. One is smack dab in the middle of Montgomery Co, the other is just East of the Bucks Co line. Read the details of each below, in the words of each race director:

Frenchtown, NJ Go, Daddy, Go (and Mommy too) 5k:
(app on

Looking to set a PR in your next 5k and maybe win an award as well???? Run the
Go Daddy Go 5K this Sat at Kingwood Park which is located 3 miles east of Frenchtown, NJ. The course is a flat, wheel measured out and back cinder packed trail that meanders thru the woods along the Lockatong Creek. When you enter back into the park you will do a loop in the park which will be extremely exciting and motivating because all your family and friends will be able to cheer you on.
RIGHT NOW, WE HAVE ABOUT 40 ENTRIES FOR 40 AWARDS!!! Our pre registration list consists of seasoned runners to first timers, we will have local cross country teams and encourage local running clubs to pass the word around and join us in this great race.
There will be overall male and female winner trophies as well as age group awards. The race will be followed by a 2 Mile Fun run/walk and a ½ mile kids fun run and plenty of food and refreshments.
The park has jungle gyms, soccer fields, softball fields, picnic tables- there will be something for the whole family to enjoy! Have fun at the park and then enjoy the surrounding towns like Frenchtown, Lambertsville, New Hope and Peddler's Village. Look forward to seeing you there!
Lastly, don't forget the always wonderful Smith's Challenge All Male 10k Trail Run in Lancaster on Sunday. This is the race that taught me how to play in the mud again, after some 30+ years of giving it up. After I finished, i said, "I just GOTTA have one of these in Reading!" And the rest is history!
