HappyJack 5K

The Happy Jack 5k is an annual, family friendly 5k walk/run that takes place in October, on or around Jack's birthday. This race was our first event put together to help support the fund and last year we were able to raise over $8,000. The race is held in New City, NY and is an out and back style race beginning and ending in Germonds Park with traffic being controlled by the Clarkstown Police Department/Auxiliary Police. Additionally, we also offer a kid’s fun run for all ages prior to the 5k.

Our Annual Happy Jack 5K is a great opportunity to come together to celebrate our son’s life! There are several ways to be a part of The Happy Jack Fund such as fundraising, forming a team to compete, volunteering on race day, or just coming out to support the runners. These are easy to do and a great way to share the mission of The Happy Jack Fund with family, friends, and colleagues.

The date for this year’s 8th Annual Happy Jack 5K is Saturday,October 17, 2020 at 8 AM - 11 AM. Please see pricing information below or click the Run Sign Up button to register. You can also check our Facebook page by clicking the link in the top right corner of this page.

There will be a LIVE race this year as well as a virtual option. Obviously with Covid still being a concern we want to make sure everyone is safe and healthy before and AFTER the event. We are taking the following measures to ensure everyone's safety while also staying in compliance with guidelines set forth by the State and Government:

  • Temperature check
  • Facemask's will be provided by our sponsor Hector Camilo State Farm Insurance Agency
  • Start corrals will have no more than 50 participants in each start corral
  • The race will use a serpentine start method, meaning 3 too 4 runners will be introduced to the race course slowly to spread participants out along the race course
  • there will be no spectators allowed at the event sadly
  • all participants will be required to wear a mask when within a 6ft proximity to other participants (except when on the race course)
  • all participants will be required to sign a waiver upon registration
  • the awards presentation will be done via Facebook LIVE/A Zoom link (which will be posted on www.happyjackfund.com). Winners will be able to pick up their award at The Burger Loft/District 96 at their convenience later that morning/early afternoon. 

We are very excited to be able to hold this event LIVE this year under the circumstances and we promise to do everything within our power to ensure everyone's safety. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact us at racecommittee@happyjackfund.org. Thank you for your continued support and we can't wait to see you all at the finish line.
