Garden State 10 - Rescheduled

New Date: October 18, 2020

Dear fellow runners,

We are sorry to announce that the Garden State 10 has been postponed.  After the mass cancelations of athletic events, parades, and even colleges this week, this probably comes as no surprise.  However, that doesn't make this announcement any less heartbreaking.  You have all trained so hard through the winter, and you are all so excited to begin your spring racing season with the GS10.  We are sorry to postpone a race we are all so excited about!

But as you perhaps know, Governor Murphy banned public gatherings of more than 250 people, and all races are complying with such orders for the safety of the runners, volunteers, and the public in light of the novel coronavirus.

However, we are excited to announce three options for our pre-registered runners:

1- Defer to October 18, 2020.  If you select this option, you have no further actions to take.  We will roll over your registration!
2- Defer to March 28, 2021.  If you select this option, look for an email later today with instructions on how to do so.
3- Interested in a Virtual Race?  We are exploring this option.  If you're interested in this, please email us back.

Thank you for your patience and understanding here.  One way or another, we're excited to see you with these awesome GS10 finisher medals around your neck!

The Garden State 10 Games Committee

Here Are Your Options:

Your registration will automatically be moved to the rescheduled date of 10/18/2020.

We will send you instructions shortly on how to defer to next year.

Description

 

RACE DATE RESCHEDULED TO:  SUNDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2020

Welcome the arrival of fall with the 4th annual Garden State 10, the fastest 10 miler in the tri-state area. 
If you're up for something shorter, jump in the 5k at 8:45 am. If you're ready for the 10 miler, the main event goes off at 9:30.  Do it solo or with a partner!  Or, if you're really ambitious, run both races and complete the Half Marathon Challenge and collect two finisher medals!

Either way, you'll be supporting the Nick Magos Cancer Callout, a non-profit that supports cancer victims of the Somerset County SWAT Team.
