The PCTI (formerly PCRC) Winter Series IS back... AGAIN ...for 2019!  The Winter Series is a great way to connect with your running brethren and sistren while keeping your training up/going as we proceed through the colder Winter months in Northern NJ. The 2019 Series will be a tad different than year's past. We'll run three (3) races and a Finale, as before, however this year the entire PCTI student body, or at least a strong cross section will be out in full force during the Finale to cheer, support and run alongside our loyal (YOU!) Winter Series alumni (and newbies!). Crowd support goes through the roof when this happens so your going to want to be part of this years event. Just ask those who have run it... its a great event. 

This event grows through word of mouth so be sure to share the Facebook Event (bottom of the site) or tell those you train/run/socialize with that this year is set to be something truly special. See everyone on the PCTI asphalt Jan 13th, Jan 27th, Feb 10th and Feb 24th

Benefactor #1Passaic County Technical Institute Education Foundation

Founded in 1998, the Passaic County Technical Institute Education Foundation is comprised of local business people whose goal is to provide PCTI students with enhanced educational and scholarship opportunities ensuring an optimal education experience.


  • To foster supportive community and private sector relationships to service the interest and needs of the students.
  • To inform the community about the strengths and challenges faced by PCTI.
  • To provide mini-grants to students to develop innovative programs and activities in science and technology, fine and performing arts, language research and culture.
  • To provide small grants to PCTI educational staff members to initiate quality projects consistent with the goals of the Foundation and to bring positive attention to PCTI.
  • To provide scholarships to students of PCTI for post-secondary opportunities.
  • To make distributions, for educational purposes, to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under Section 501 (C) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code or any successor statute.
  • To seek donations of equipment and funds from business or individuals to support the Foundation’s educational goals and purposes.

Why run the Winter Series?: Besides helping to support the PCTi Educational Foundation you will absolutely love it, the people and the camaraderie that has developed over the first five seasons is quite telling.

The course is moderately challenging. However its completely closed to traffic. Inside there are a number of places to stay warm and use the facilities as needed. Lets also not forget about the piping hot "Bagel Stop" bagel you get after each and every race.

Those who have run the Winter Series always come back the following year. The Custodians of this Passaic County campus do a spectacular job keeping the roadways clear. PCTi also has their own police force which is complemented by the Passaic County Sheriff's Office whose HQ and Training facilities are on compound, just around the corner. Talk about safety!!!

If that's not enough... just find someone who has run the Winter Series. They'll tell you why! You can also checkout David Franz of the Highland Hashers kickin' it in 19:26!!!
