Kick off 2019 in one of the best ways possible: By joining the Swarthmore Recreation Association for its annual New Year’s Day 5K and Kids' Races on Tuesday, Jan. 1. Race-day registration starts at 9 a.m. at Swarthmore College’s Lamb-Miller Field House. The 5K starts at 10:30 a.m. and winds through Swarthmore in a flat and fast course that ends with a lap at the college track. Kids’ races, also on the college track, start at about 11:30 a.m. for children ages 2 through 13. NEW this year: Early registration is $20.19 (through Nov. 1). Regular pre-registration (Nov. 2 through noon Dec. 31) is $25, and the race-day registration fee is $30. 5K registrants receive long-sleeve tech T-shirts. Post-race refreshments will be served, and unique race medals of etched wood are awarded to the top two finishers overall and in each age category, male and female. Kids’ races are FREE, and ribbons will be awarded to youth participants.
