Please note, we do not time runners although there

are two race clocks along the route.

Please carpool and arrive early. 


You can ONLY park on the following side streets: Mohawk, Rockledge or Ramapo Trails, located below Van Houton Avenue.


Please do not try to park along the racecourse on Van Houton Avenue or Huron Drive.


Alternatively, you can walk over from Birch Hill Drive (down Fairmount) or walk from Sunset Drive(through the path) to Huron Drive and down Seminole Way.



The race travels through the Highlands neighborhood of Chatham Township. There are NO public restrooms as neighbors celebrating Thanksgiving would not appreciate a Porta-John in their front yard when family come to visit.  


Please plan ahead. We hope you understand. 




For the safety of others,

please leave your dog at home.



All 1 Mile Family Fun Run participants will receive a ribbon. The top boy/girl (under 13 years-old) will also receive a trophy at the conclusion of the 1 Mile race (~9:00 AM).
