Transcend – Trail Run
June 17 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm
Transcend features our most accessible Trail Run – perfect for all those road runners that want the chance to get in on all this fun in the dirt.
It’s a bit of an anomoly in Northern New Jersey that there’s almost no rocks in the entire park. Just plenty of fast and flowy trails. Don’t worry, there still will be plenty of challenge with 800 feet elevation gain for each 10K / 6 Mile loop.
The Top 15 runners in the Marathon, Half Marathon & 10K Categories will earn points towards being crowned Way Over Yonder Trail Run series champion.
As usual we’ll have professional sports photographer , One Imaging Photography in the woods getting absolutely epic photos of you.
If at all possible, please car pool to the event. You should plan to arrive about 60 minutes prior to your race for Trail Run events and 90 minutes prior for Truathlon events. (Full Schedule Below)
