Calendar of Events

The goal of the NJ Trail Series is to make running FUN.

Each event will be more about the time on the trails and good time after the race (cold refreshments are served), not so much about your time on the clock. These will not be PR courses. Life is not measured in time. Life is measured in family, friends, smiles, miles, and beer. Come out to a NJ Trail Series event if you enjoy fun, getting out for some exercise and meeting new friends.
