Team Bloke 5k Walk/Run

Garden State Races is proud to present the first annual Team Bloke 5K for Brain Cancer Awareness on Saturday August 6, 2016 in the Borough of Mendham.

Doug Clark is a Mendham Borough parent and a accomplished triathlete who is originally from England. In November 2014 he suffered a grand mal seizure and after two intense brain surgeries it was determined that Doug had a grade 3 malignant brain tumor. After months of chemo and radiation the tumor progressed to a grade 4 Glioblastoma multiforme. Cutting edge treatments are being used to fight this aggressive cancer. A majority of the proceeds from the race will go to help the Clark family with some of their growing medical expenses during this very tough time. A remainder of the proceeds will go to support the Mendham Borough EMT’s, who answered the Clark family’s emergency call as well as to support Stomp the Monster whose mission is to help families during the tough time of a loved one fighting cancer. All of the proceeds will be donated and we plan to fully disclose expenses and donations.


The course will start and finish at the Borough Park of Mendham and will run through the beautiful and quiet streets of the Mendham Borough. Click Here for a Course Map


The event will include a 5K run/walk and a kids fun run. There will also be an opportunity for those who can not make it to participate with our virtual 5K option. Virtual 5K participants will be mailed a race number and a t-shirt and will be able to run the 5K remotely. Upon completion of their 5K participants will email their results.


Schedule: Registration – 7:00 to 8:15 am, 5K Run/Walk – 8:30 am, Kids Fun Run – 9:30 am
