Chimney Rock 5 Miler
We regret to inform our registered runners that we will have to postpone the event due to one of our permits being cancelled because of the current health crisis. Given the uncertainty of the current events, we do not have the new date at this time but will be working with the other organizations involved to reschedule the race. Once we have a new set date, we will reach out to all registrants with additional information.
We hope you are able to join us once everything is sorted out. Thank you all in advance for your patience and understanding.
Where: Chimney Rock Park, Chimney Rock Road, Martinsville, NJ 08836
Course Info: Don’t be fooled by the relatively short distance of this race. This great 5 Miler manages to pack in all forms of trail running to test even the most seasoned trail junkies. On the single track course (map) you will encounter rocks, gnarly roots, rolling hills, stream crossings, a few climbs, and some speedy (scary) rocky downhill descents! Course marshals will be stationed throughout the race, in addition to the well-marked trail, to provide assistance and direction. A water stop will also be available, and you will pass there twice at Miles 1.5 and 4.
