WYCKOFF, N.J. -- The Wyckoff Family YMCA and the Franklin Lakes Mayors Wellness Campaign have announced the fourth annual Franklin Lakes Scenic Half-Marathon & 5K, held Sunday, September 25 -- and registration is now open.

The scenic half marathon and 5K through Franklin Lakes are USATF-certified races. They'll begin and end at the Franklin Lakes Community Center, on Vichiconti Avenue.

The registration form is here, and the course maps are here for the half marathon and here for the 5K.

The early-bird race fee for the half-marathon is $60, and $75 from July 1 until registration is full. For the 5K, it's $20 early-bird and $25. Sponsorship opportunities are also available; check the registration form for details.

Awards will be presented to the top three overall males and females as well as age-group winners in 10-year increments. Half marathon age groups are 19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60 and older. The 5K age groups are 13 and under, 14-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60 and older.

Due to the nature of the courses, strollers and headphones are prohibited.

Check-in and bag pickup for the races is at 6:15 p.m. The half marathon will begin at 8 a.m, and the 5K will begin five minutes later.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Franklin Lakes Mayors Wellness Campaign, which promotes healthy activities and well-being in the Franklin Lakes community, and the Y's newly-named community outreach initiative, "Wyckoff Y Cares."

The initiative will provides immediate care to those facing adversity and hardship in the community. That care will range from financial support, Y programs and services, and mobilizing individual volunteers to provide hands-on assistance.
