Yavneh Academy to Hold 13th Annual Benjamin Schwartz Memorial 5K Run and One Mile Fun Run/Walk

Yavneh Academy’s 13th Annual Benjamin Schwartz Memorial 5K Run and One Mile Fun Run/Walk will be held on Sunday, November 12, 2017 at the Garden State Plaza. The event, named for the brother of Yavneh parent Mendy Schwartz, provides an opportunity for the greater community to join the Yavneh Academy family as it promotes exercise and wellness while supporting the school. The 5K is an official race on a fast flat, and traffic free course. Runners earn 500 grand prix points for participating. Last year’s event had over 1,000 participants and raised over $40,000 for Yavneh.

Participants of the 5K Run and One Mile Fun Run/Walk are treated to a pre-race warm up and a buffet breakfast. At the culmination of the race, medals are presented to the top runners in the various age categories. The Yavneh Run is a great way to have fun, get in shape and raise money for a worthwhile cause.

Hi! I’m Meirah and I’m a fourth grader at Yavneh Academy! My class’s team name is the 4D Bedazzlers, and I’m going to be running in the Yavneh One Mile Fun Run!

Here are some tips for the run:

Don’t eat anything heavy before the run. A banana would be a good choice, because it will give you energy.

Do some stretches and walk a lap before you run in the actual race to get your heart pumping.

Don’t focus on beating everyone too much. Run at your own pace during the race.

Walk a lap and do some stretches after to slow down your heartbeat so you don’t get any aches.

Most importantly, have fun! I hope this helps! See you at the run!
