THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED
This is a difficult time for the running community. We all have had races cancelled and are experiencing the disappointment associated with those cancellations. However, I believe it is the right thing to do to take precautionary measures to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus. I really love seeing people enjoy the events that I put on and have been looking forward to this since I started preparing for this race 3 months ago. It is a very challenging time for local race directors since most of the registration money has already been spent to put on these races and can not be recouped.
I have added two options (virtual run or roll-over registration) in the Questions section that I am asking you to visit and to select how you would like to proceed. Please provide your responses by March 31.
Once again, please stay safe and take care of yourself and loved ones. We will all get through this together. I am looking forward to a time when we can get back to enjoying the trails together at our races as well as our weekly Saturday group runs.
Get stoked to hit the trails of South Mountain Reservation with its diverse terrain, variety of wildlife, a waterfall, bridges, and close proximity to New York City. Our love for running scenic and challenging trails followed by some tasty tacos has led us to share this experience with you.
Local time: 6:10 PM
Choose between a mellow 10-miler, a gnarly 20-miler, and a super gnarly 50k run. The terrain ranges from single track to wider trails with rocks, roots and a few climbs but nothing that would be regrettable. We know you’ll have an awesome time! Participants will receive super awesome race swag to be determined soon! Aid stations will be stocked with all of your favorite trail goodies and Gatorade Endurance will be the official hydration sponsor! Free parking directly across the street in the train station or Library Lots!
As always bring a change of clothes so you can comfortably chill out in the Tito's recovery tent that will be filled with all of the sticks, rollers and recovery devices to make the next day more manageable. On running shoes is sponsoring shoes for the 1st place 10, 20 Miler & 50K winners!!!
The race begins and ends across the street from the Millburn train station. Friends and family may visit the Turtle Back Zoo at South Mountain, explore downtown Millburn, and enjoy the nearby Regatta Playground in West Orange, while you navigate the course or afterwards.
***As always this is a cupless race so bring a hand held to run with (you will pass the mid point aid station 2 times before returning to the start)
