The 17th annual New Balance Moonlight Run 5K road race will kick off next Friday, June 4, at 8 p.m. at Young's Field Road in New Milford.

The event has been shortened this season to a 2.9-mile course due to construction on the tennis and basketball courts.

Registration at $17 will be accepted mail-in or on-line at www.active.com until Thursday, June 3.

Race-day signup will be $21.

The race will be preceded at 7:15 and 7:30 p.m. by the Webster Bank Kids Fun Run for children aged 6-11.
