2020 HOHA Classic Canceled due to COVID-19

Each year for the past 21 years the Hoboken Harriers Running Club has brought the community together to celebrate Mother’s Day weekend with our 5 Mile Run and 1 Mile Kids Race.

We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in the hope that we would be able to announce a postponed date for the 2020 race, however with the increase of the number of COVID-19 cases in Hoboken and the uncertainty around timelines we have sadly made the decision to cancel 2020 HOHA Classic.

This is particularly devastating to us as all proceeds from our race are donated to the Jubilee Center of Hoboken and they need our support more than ever now. The Jubilee Center has been closed since March 16th, the closure and resulting loss of income is particularly hard for the Jubilee Center's dedicated staff whom Jubilee families entrust with the health and safety of their children every day.

We understand that COVID-19 has impacted many people, as such we are offering three options to our registered participants:

Option 1: Defer your entry to the 2021 HOHA Classic on May 8, 2021. Your 2020 race fee is not refunded. Log into your account to select this option. 

Option 2: Get a refund of your 2020 entry fee. Although we have incurred some expenses for the event already, we will offer you a full refund of your entry fees. Select this option below.

Option 3: Donate your entry fee to the Jubilee Center. You may request your full refund to be donated to the Jubilee Center, donations will support the Jubilee Center to continue to pay their staff during this crisis, and ensure that they can return to providing high-quality, out-of-school time academic enrichment when the Jubilee Center re-opens. Select this option below.

You have until April 23rd to select one of these options. If you have any questions regarding this process, please visit our COVID-19 page or send an email to:


How do I log into my account?

Here Are Your Options:

Many of you have very generously asked to donate your registration fee to support the Jubilee Center. Your donation will support the Jubilee Center to continue to pay their staff during this crisis, and ensure that they can return to providing high-quality, out-of-school time academic enrichment when the Jubilee Center re-opens. If you would like to donate your registration fee, please select this option. All donation receipts for tax-deductible donations will be sent by July 31.

We understand. We hope to see you at the 2021 HOHA Classic.
