Can You Outrun The Bumble?

Back for it's 3rd year! Celebrate the holiday season and your love for trail-running by testing your ability to outrun the Bumble through this scenic and diverse 10K course.

Brought to you by Run Life Events. We are very excited to announce Solex Catsmo will be back as our food sponsor and will be providing their awesome Smoked Salmon and bagels. Forget about out running the Bumble... can you out run everyone else? If so, On running shoes will be giving away a free pair of Ons to the 1st place male and female runner!!! This year a portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit Rhodes Center for Glioblastoma at NewYork-Presbyterian in the name of Tom O'Reilly. The more participants and the more runners crossing the finish line ahead of the Bumble, the more the charity receives.

DJ Nate will be back providing that awesome vibe that he always provides. Free shuttle from the Summit train station provided for our NYC friends! Every runner receives a commemorative camp mug and an awesome race tee.

This race will sell out so register early!!!

Don't be a Scrooge or a Grinch. See you at Watchung Reservation on December 5!

P.S. - Bring an ornament to trim the Bumble's tree! (optional) The ornaments will once again be donated to the Goryeb children's hospital.

***As always this is a cupless race so bring something to carry water in
****Race SWAG will only be guaranteed to those that register before Nov 5th!!!
