Join us on Sunday, August 4, for a morning of fun, food, and a little friendly running competition. The annual Inter Club Challenge will take place at 9:00 AM at Garret Mountain Reservation in Woodland Park, NJ. Plan to arrive by 8:30 AM to allow time to park and pick up your bib number. After you enter the reservation, follow the road around until you reach the upper picnic area at the Great Meadow near the Auto Overlook. The race will start there and will be two loops around the reservation on the road for a total of 4 miles.

This unique event pits Essex Running Club, Clifton Road Runners, North Jersey Masters and Geezers against each other in an unofficial club competition. The informal race is handicapped based on age and sex with the oldest females from each club toeing the line first, followed every few minutes by the next group of age-appropriate runners until the youngest males cross the line at the back of the pack.  Every runner has a chance to be the first across the finish line! Then, finishing positions are tallied up and one local club is crowned as the victor.

Wear your team colors—come early for pre-race breakfast and stay late for the after-party (catered by NJM)! The picnic is a once-a-year opportunity to socialize with your top competitors. We do, after all, share a love for the same sport!
