The arrival of fall is a welcome relief to runners who spend summer dealing with heat and humidity. October is a popular month for 5K races and my friends at the Causeway Family of Dealerships in Manahawkin are sponsoring one on Sunday, October 21st for the benefit of Fulfill (formerly The Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties). The Causeway Family 5K Run and Walk will start at 9 a.m. at the Stafford Township Municipal Complex with overall and age group awards as well as door prizes.

Causeway is organizing the race to help raise money so Fulfill can continue to provide services to help end hunger in the shore area. Registration for both runners and walkers is $25 until October 15 and T-shirts are guaranteed to the first 250 who register which you can do at https://raceforum.com/causeway.
