Rutgers Big Chill 5k
December 3 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Rutgers Big Chill 5k is a charitable event that has served the Rutgers University-New Brunswick, NJ community since 2003. Similarly to last year, we will offer both an in-person and virtual race. Our in-person race will occur on December 3 at 10 am, with runner check-in beginning at 8 am.
