The 4th annual ESPN 1420 Jersey Fun Run presented by United Public Workers (UPW) is set for Saturday, Feb. 3, 2018 at Aloha Stadium. This time around, we’re adding a FREE “Ohana Fest” that will include activities, entertainment, vendors, celebrity appearances and giveaways before, during and after the fun!

The Jersey Fun Run will once again feature an easy, family-friendly 3k course that takes runners and walkers in and around the 50,000-seat stadium, including parts of the facility that are usually only accessible to coaches, players and stadium personnel. The course will also include a number of sports-related activity stations that kids and grownups alike are sure to enjoy. Try your hand at challenging-yet-fun drills involving football, basketball, baseball, soccer and more!

The run culminates with a dash across the football field. See yourself on the stadium’s Jumbo-Tron and show us your best touchdown dance in the end zone!

Best of all, proceeds from the event will benefit the Salvation Army (Hawaiian Islands & Pacific Islands Division), a non-profit organization that strives to serve the poor, destitute and hungry. The Hawaiian Islands & Pacific Islands Division of the Salvation Army serves Hawaii, Guam, the Marshall Islands and Micronesia.
