Highland Park 5k

The club is once again a sponsor of the Highland Park 5k!

For those of you not running the NJ marathon on Sunday May 1, this is a great local option finishing right at our own HP track where we will have a table to let other runners know about our great club and events. The race directors are club members, the proceeds support the municipality where we run, and there’s a fantastic street fair afterwards. They are also looking for some volunteers, if you are interested, please sign up at http://runinthepark.org/

Run for the team!

Clinton Country Run 15k is on Saturday, April 30– All Divisions (Open and Masters Men and Women)

Even if you’ve never run for our team (or any team) we need you! From the slowest to the fastest – pace is not important!

The Clinton 15k is an Open and Masters, Men and Women event, so everybody counts (Masters runners, those 40 and over, count twice)

All you need to be is an RVRR member and a USATF member.

ClintonCountry 15k has a beautiful course that is a combination of country streets, soft surface greenway, and some rolling hills.

This is your chance to try out a unique distance and get some awesome training in for your spring Marathon and/or trail racing. Let’s show those other teams what we are about!

Warning: team support can make you run faster.

If you can’t make this race, please look ahead at the rest of the races this year – listed at the bottom of this page. It’s often cheaper to sign up earlier (don’t forget there’s a USATF discount for all these races too).

Please contact your captains if you are interested in running.
