Ticks / bugs: I highly recommend wearing something to keep bugs away from you and ticks off of you.

Weather: There is a 50% chance of scattered thunderstorms for the entire day.

Remember, HAVE FUN. NJ Trail Series tries to create an event where you can challenge your self against your self and others by running around in the woods for a few hours. Please remember to have fun and enjoy your time out there.
