Join us for our 2nd Annual Headwaters Hero 5k!

September 18th - October 3rd

  • Register!
  • Choose your favorite location to run, hike, bike, or paddle 3.1 miles between September 18th and October 3rd. Participate with family members, your pod, your neighbors, or even co-workers! Near and far - everyone can be a Headwaters Hero!
  • RHA wants to celebrate all of our heroes! Send us your pictures and we will include them in our social media posts and our monthly newsletter. Contact Shealynn O'Toole at
  • Post or share our posts about the Headwaters Hero 5k. Please tag us or include a hashtag; #RHA5k, #HeadwatersHero5k, #RaritanHeadwaters, #RHA
  • Help us reach our goal! With your participation, we will raise $5,000 to help us continue to protect water in our rivers, streams, and homes!

As a token of our appreciation, feel free to stop by our Headquarters, Fairview Farm Wildlife Preserve (2121 Larger Cross Rd., Far Hills, NJ), or our Flemington Office (124 Main St., Flemington, NJ) to pick up a canvas tote bag! One bag per participant while supplies last!

 There are many trails to explore in our watershed and we encourage you to take a path less traveled!


Explore our beautiful watershed while you run, hike, bike, or paddle. This event is virtual which allows you to assemble a team or race by yourself and choose where and when you would like to participate.


Visit our website to see maps of great hiking, biking, and water trails within our watershed.
