For perhaps the first time in the club’s history, we’re changing our traditional weekly summer hosted runs and making them a little more “events”. We’re also providing prizes for “perfect attendance”. Currently, we have August 26th and September 2nd open. Please contact Paul Maloney at if you are interested in hosting.

Wednesday, July 8th- Pizza Mile at Brookdale Park

This year there will be Open and Masters Division for both Men and women. Not familiar with what the pizza mile is think beer mile with pizza.

The 14th annual Downtown Westfield 5K & Pizza Extravaganza will be held on July 22, 2015. This event, one of the largest non-corporate 5K races in the state, attracted 2,500 runners and over 6,000 spectators in 2014 for an evening of running, pizza, prizes, DJ entertainment, and live music by Michael Craig Band & FOG. Many club members compete in this race each year. We hope to see you. Please note that there are only “pre-entries” so sign up as soon as possible.
