5 Mile Eagle Trail Run and 2 mile Turkey GROUP RUN
Sat. Jan. 7, 2017 10:17am
Location: Secret Mystery wooded area North Brunswick/ East Bruns, South B
For those registered, an email will be sent with secret start location. To register, please go to Register online to be set up soon.
Tired of the same old neighborhood roads, traffic, and bad drivers? Join the off-road runners for a great and unusual training run. See the swamps and wooded areas saved from development. The Rumson Hash House Harriers again return to the woods and marsh of a mystery location in South Middlesex County, NJ. Hashing is not a race but a non-competitive group run which follows an off-road course laid out with baking flour. If you like trail running without the competition of a formal race, this will be a fun switch for you. This is a complex and different course through woods, grass, swamp and marsh. Wear old running shoes.
Please bring a can food donation for a community Food Bank. Volunteers receive pirate skull backpack and skull bandanna. Please email if you wish to volunteer.
You must be over 21 years old to participate. No times are recorded. A sense a humor is a must
Start: You will be send an email end of December.
