Join us for the first annual Squatchy Onesie Fest 5k-Marathon! Come sporting your favorite onesie and get ready to make some trail running/hiking memories that will last a lifetime. Now when your non-running friends ask, "Hey, how was your 5K marathon?" You won't have to correct them!!

Course Information:

This trail party starts and finishes at the NYNJTC Headquarters. When you get to the park, please park in the park parking lot. The small lot at Headquarters is reserved for NYNJTC staff only. There is a short path through the woods that connects the two lots. We will have check-in at the NYNJTC Headquarters so you can hang out there before and after the race. There are real restrooms in the building too (#winning).

The "lollipop" course is 1.60 miles long. All runners and hikers will squatch the full course twice to complete the 5K. All runners/hikers need to come all the way back to Headquarters after the first loop so our timing system records your split. With the exception of the small trail that connects Headquarters to the park, the entire lollipop course is a very wide gravel/dirt trail. The small trail that connects you to the park is a single track and is less than .20 mi long. The scenic loop goes all the way around Scarlet Oak Pond; it is not technical and it is very flat. No need for aggressive lugs or even trail shoes; road shoes would be just fine. We will provide a detailed trail conditions report leading up to the race and include any recommendations for winter traction (spikes).
