North Jersey Masters Spring and Fall 2020 Beginner Programs postponed due to the pandemic

New Date: Spring and Fall 2020 programs have been canceled due to the pandemic / Spring 2021 program date to be determined

In consideration of the current state COVID response guidelines and continuing safety concerns due to the pandemic, the North Jersey Masters has made the difficult decision to cancel the Fall 2020 beginner program. With so many uncertainties we are offering you the option to transfer to the Spring 2021 session ( which we anticipate will start late March 2021) or to cancel your registration and receive a full refund ( exclusive of processing fees). Please let us know your preference by 9/1/2020. Stay active and be safe. Let's continue to support one another and to spread positive energy during this challenging time . Hope to see you next year.

Coach Linda, North Jersey Masters, USATF Level II Endurance Coach

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the new event date once it is set, and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.

We understand and hope you can join us for our next session.
