Bleed green while you run for fun, or to win! The Green and White Jets 5k presented by Cleanwell, NRG, and ShopRite will take you behind the scenes of the Jets state-of-the-art training facility – The Atlantic Health Jets Training Center.

Race proceeds will support a floor-by-floor renovation of the cancer center to centralize services, streamline workflow, enhance the patient experience, and transform cancer care for the community– now and for generations to come.
The race will take place in and around the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center in Florham Park, with a spectacular finish on the 50 yard line. 5K course map is available here. Kids’ Fun Run map is available here.
