Benzel-Busch Mercedes Again Sponsors The 8th Annual Norwood Fast & Flat 5K

Among the many outdoor events in beautiful New Jersey, we are partial to those that garner support for the community and take place right in our backyard.

The Norwood Fast & Flat 5K was founded by a group of avid runners—and Norwood locals—back in 2004. After travelling to races all over the NY-NJ metro area to compete, the group decided it was time that Norwood had its own, legitimate race. And one with a major community give-back component.

The group has now raised more than $100,000 for local organizations and charities like the EMS, the Norwood Library, food banks, cancer research centers, and the fire department (to name a few).

We at Benzel-Busch have been proud sponsors for many years, and are excited to support this year’s race too.

The 2012 Norwood Fast & Flat 5K will take place on October 27th and will include, for the first time, a dog walk. Serious runners, not-so-serious runners, and walkers are all welcome. The race is USATF-NJ certified and, like last year, is expected to draw 500+ runners—many of whom regularly run their personal record on the flat course.

The Norwood Fast & Flat 5K and dog walk till start at 9:30am on Saturday, October 27th. It will both start and end Kennedy Field in Norwood. For more information visit the event on Facebook here!
