Chimney Rock Trail Series
New for 2021!
Our Chimney Rock 5 miler is a popular race, so we decided to make a trail series at Washington Valley Park (Chimney Rock Park). When?
June 12, 2021: Tentative Date for the 5 miler. Subject to permit availability and anticipated increase in NJ outdoor gathering limits.
September 2021: Same day 5k/10k with a new course! (Stay tuned for more information)
Rescheduled to 9/5/2020
When: 9/5/2020--Race Starts at 9AM
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.
Race Day: Participants can park at Chimney Rock Park parking lot off Chimney Rock Road, with the registration area at the end of the lot near the park bathrooms. Be sure to check in and collect your bib, The pre-race briefing will be given in the registration area before heading to the start/finish area, which is a short walk down the paved pathway toward the playground.
Awards: Top 3 Male & Female Finishers. Custom Rock Trophies. Awards are also given for the top 2 Male & Female finishers in 10 year age bands. 10-19; 20-19; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60-69; 70-79; 80 and over.
