Ashenfelter 8K Classic

Glen Ridge, New Jersey

Awesome race experience!!

This was my first year running the Ashenfelter 8K on Thanksgiving morning, and it was PERFECT! It was about 15 degrees and the ability to wait inside, use real bathrooms, and warm up before the race was so incredibly helpful. The course was GREAT... I ran my fastest race pace ever and absolutely loved the crowd support and camaraderie among runners. The post-race celebration was awesome!! Bagels, donuts, hot chocolate, ice cream (!!), water... the spread was fantastic. It was also amazing to gather with friends in the warm gym. It was a quick 5-minute walk back to my car, which was also very much appreciated. To top it all off, the long-sleeve tech shirt is fantastic! I will definitely sign up for this awesome race again next year!
