The 3rd Annual Totowa PAL Road Race, a.k.a Totowa PAL-O-Ween 5K is being brought to you by (Diamond Event Sponsor, TBD) and is set for October 30th of this year. Support for this event will assist the PAL in fostering its athletic programs to the children of the Totowa community by providing much needed facilities and infrastructure maintenance. In order to maintain our programs the Totowa PAL community must fundraise as a means of generating the funds needed to insure the ongoing support and safety of the facilities and programs the PAL community has come to rely on. This includes, but is not limited to, the PAL building itself, whose roof is still in need of significant repair/replacement. The roof fund started its fourth year in 2011. Proceeds collected through this fundraising event will be earmarked for this and other underpinning projects spread across the next several years. More details on these projects can be located as part of the event sponsorship (levels) package provided or by contacting Kevin Barnes of the Totowa PAL Board of Directors. The PAL Road Races, since its inaugural running two years ago, have been well received, thanks to the supportive community. The PAL, however, still has a long way to go. The event has become a fundraising staple, however it still requires the community’s continued attention and focus to succeed. Focused as a family friendly affair, the PAL-O-Ween encourages all PAL members, 7 & older to walk the 5K with their parents while the those 9 & under can participate in the Kid’s Fun Run. Given the Halloween theme all our walkers will be able to Trick-or-Treat through the course where a number of candy stations will be setup and hosted by costumed PAL parents/supporters. The Kid’s Carnival following the 5K award’s ceremony is well positioned for an afternoon of fun. The following schedule will be in affect for the day’s events and should make for a most enjoyable Fall family outing: 8:00-9:30am 10am 11:00am 11:30am 12:00pm 6pm
5K Registration 5K Run/Walk/Trick-or-Treat Start Awards Ceremony Kid’s Fun Run Kid’s Carnival Event Closes
Many of our local business will be on hand to add to the event festivities. As one can tell from its name this event boasts a USATF New Balance Grand Prix (please check www.usatfnj.org for additional details) road racing event. The 5K (3.1 mile) course is a single loop through the streets of Totowa which surround the PAL
building and its playing field/areas. Upon conclusion of the Awards Ceremony there will be a Kids Fun Run for those 9 & Under. All participants will be awarded. The course is roughly a third of a mile around the PAL field along the paved running track. The Kid’s Carnival will commence immediately following the Fun Run. The carnival will be jam packed. There will be blow up slides, games of chance, local business support and plenty of food and fun to carry everyone through a cool Fall afternoon. Several local businesses have been asked to provide a kid friendly activity to attract the parents and kids alike to their designated area.
The 2011 event will carry with it a special Halloween theme to entice the community and those that read about the event to come out and have a good time. For 2011 the event will be dubbed the “Totowa PAL-O-Ween 5K Run & Kid’s Carnival”. Costumes, face painting, candy stations and Halloween specific amusements will be the order of the day. PAL volunteers and local businesses will be asked to get in on the festivities by providing support the Halloween them. We expect a few ghosts, goblins and monsters to be on hand to scare the bejeebers out of those that dare to enter. To ensure the word gets out the Totowa PAL will be actively canvassing the NJ road racing scene starting in late August. Flyers (below) will be placed on race tables and in event bags to ensure the “running” community is well informed. Additionally an advertisement will be placed in the Sept/Oct issue of RaceForum(.com), which most consider to be the multi-sport event bible, to ensure coverage across all road racing events in Northern NJ.

A community mailing will be sent out in support of the event while a series of email blasts will be targeted to 2,000+ Passaic County Runners and 25,000 RaceForum subscribers. This media blitz will be supported by the Passaic County Race Directors Coalition of which Ross Mistretta, our co-director is both the founder and President. (www.pcrcnj.org). For those that want to take there time and enjoy a leisurely stroll with friend and family as the children trick or treat there way through the course we recommend coming out and walking the course. Running, jogging, walking, skipping, trotting or lollygaging… are all supported along the Pal-O-Ween course. Take your pick and get your feet moving with us. The Totowa PAL Board of Directors are committed to those that support their efforts. The Totowa PAL and its members welcomes your suggestions as it’s only with your involvement that this event will be able to evolve. Please convey your expectations to us and we’ll work closely with you, our sponsor, to ensure that the event is as lucrative for you, as we expect it to be for the PAL. The Race Committee suggests that those attending make a day of it, bring the family, stick around and have some fun with the Totowa Community and its sponsors.
