Join Kaplen JCC for 37th Annual Rubin Run This Sunday

(Courtesy of Kaplen JCC) The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades will hold its 37th annual Rubin Run this Sunday, May 13. This exciting USATF (USA Track and Field) sanctioned event is attended by more than 1,500 people each year, celebrates family and fitness and raises important funds for programs that improve the quality of life for individuals with special needs in our community.

This year’s event will feature an exciting new option—an 8K trail run through the Lost Brook Preserve, which is maintained by the Tenafly Nature Center. Participants who register for this scenic route will enjoy a challenging yet runnable course through historic, native terrain.

The Run will also include its annual 10K and 5K options and has been designed to provide something for everyone. Adding to the fun, the event will feature outdoor activities for kids, lite bites and beverages, free babysitting, pre-race stretches and warm-ups, CompuScore race-recording, trophies to the top three male and female winners in each age category and a medal for all children under 10 who finish the race. And, in honor of Mother’s Day, all participating moms will receive a rose as they cross the finish line.

“The Rubin Run exemplifies everything we stand for at the JCC,” said JCC Chief Executive Officer Jordan Shenker. “It brings our community together to share in something meaningful; it celebrates family togetherness—and on a very special day; it acknowledges the importance of fitness and healthy lifestyles; and it raises significant funds for one of the JCC’s most core missions, which is to provide people with special needs with meaningful programs that allow them to flourish to their best potential and become productive, healthy and engaged members of our community.”
