The Rutgers Big Chill 5k is a charitable event that has served the Rutgers University-New Brunswick, NJ community since 2003. We are excited about the return of our highly anticipated in-person event on December 11 at 10 am.
To minimize contact and provide a safe environment for all runners, we will NOT be collecting toys. In place of toys, we will be collecting a race fee. A virtual 5k will be offered again for participants who cannot be there in person.
Proceeds from the race will support two charities: Winter Wishes, an annual holiday-themed event that provides clothing and toys to children ages 3-5 in New Brunswick preschool programs, and The Rutgers Student Food Pantry, which provides food to Rutgers students experiencing food insecurities.
We anticipate the return of the traditional Big Chill 5K from prior years in the future.
Through the generosity of our runners and sponsors, we raised over $21,000 in 2020!
We will only accept pre-registered runners this year.
There will be no in-person registration. Pre-Registration will take place from November 1st – December 8th and will be limited to 2,500 runners.
The Rutgers Big Chill has been a staple within the Rutgers University-New Brunswick Community for almost 20 years and is enjoyed by thousands of runners each year.
Our goal is to continue the Big Chill tradition while giving back to the community and keeping participants active and motivated.
