In the event that the race sells out, we will have a limited number of charity bibs available at the race.

Due to the popularity of this event and for the safety and enjoyment of participants the race will be limited to 1,500 runners. Sign up early!

Individual Fundraising Contest

The race benefits a great cause—the Hoboken Shelter—and we’ll have prizes for our top fundraisers. Fantastic prizes will be given to those who raise $250 or more for the Shelter. More details to come shortly!

Run as a Team

To run as a team, you need a minimum of 3 people—and there is no maximum. You can register in the following categories: Open, Men, Women. So gather your friends, work colleagues, roommates, etc.; come up with a unique team name; and get your costumes ready for October!

Team Contest!

Get together with your teammates and raise some money for the Hoboken Shelter, while competing for some great prizes from generous Hoboken businesses. (We will announce the Team Contest Prizes soon, with prizes for First and Second places.)


Awards will be presented to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place overall. Age group awards will be presented to the Top 3 male and female finishers in the following age categories:12-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70 and up.

Get a Charity Bib

We are pleased to once again offer a special “charity bib.” The cost is $100, which includes a $65 tax-deductible gift to the Hoboken Shelter. You’ll receive a special gift from the HoBOOken5K, a tax receipt, and the satisfaction of donating to a great cause.

Registration Policy

The HoBOOken5k is rain or shine! Race fees are non-refundable and cannot be transferred to next year’s race or another event. Sorry, no exceptions. However, your registration can be transferred to another participant until online registration closes. Registration transfers can be done through the online registration page once you have logged into Race Roster. There is a $15 transfer fee along with any event price difference. There will be no registration transfers after the online registration deadline or on race day.
