5K on Market Day – Saturday, October 2

It was a beautiful day at the 5K on Market Day! The NLC board expresses our sincere thanks to our sponsors and we encourage our membership and community to patronize them whenever possible.

We would also like to recognize Greenhouse Developers for supplying water for the event, Picollo Trattoria for supplying the prize winner gift cards and Shady Brook Farms for their table decorations.

It takes many hands, from sponsors to road marshals and countless event volunteers to make a successful event.  We especially want to thank our Borough Police Department, notably Corporal Warunek who worked with us organizing all the safety factors needed for the runners.  Thank you ALL!

Find race results and photos below! See you next year!

About Market Day and the Library Book Sale

The race ends at the library, where the Market Day activities begin! Food trucks, music, crafters, and activities for children are planned throughout the Market area. The library will have its annual book sale as well!

The library is now collecting book donations! We are accepting the following types of books in like-new or gently-used condition:

  • children’s books,
  • bestsellers,
  • mysteries (not old),
  • novels

We will NOT accept:

  • textbooks,
  • reference books (encyclopedias, dictionaries, etc.),
  • old collections,
  • magazines,
  • cassettes,
  • VHS tapes

Thank you for your support!

For more information on Market Day visit the Newtown Historic Association website.

Parking is available at the Northeast corner of Penn and Lincoln. On-street parking is available on North Lincoln Avenue or South Lincoln Avenue. Market Day will be on the South side of Washington Avenue, so some streets may be closed for that activity.


The help and participation of volunteers are crucial in making this event successful, fun, and safe. There are a variety of volunteer slots open.
