||A warm July night in trendy, upscale Westfield. Add a fast and scenic 5K, a great band and an amenities package that can't be beat. Did we forget the pizza? It all adds up to the 17th Annual Downtown Westfield 5K and Pizza Extravaganza.
The fast course will challenge you, and you'll finish at Elm and Broad streets in the heart of downtown. Come early, stay late, as we entertain and feed you. We'll also throw in some neat surprises. (Hint--Embroidered cap to first 600 entrants.)
Westfield is a snap to find using the Garden State Parkway or Route 22. Tech T-shirt guaranteed to the first 2500 registered; the first 600 to register also get an embroidered cap. So register early!

17 Years Running & the Pizza's still hot!
