Glen Ridge, New Jersey
My favorite race in New Jersey!
This has been one of my favorite races for many years. It has this unique combination of a festive community holiday event and a very competitive race at the same time. The treats before/after the race are the best, too! I also love the mug prize (the years I can get one). Of course, it was also very special when Horace Ashenfelter would shake your hand after the race (he will be remembered warmly). Thank you for making the corral starts this year: that was the only thing that left room for improvement (as I've written to the race director last year), and I really appreciate you listening to the runners and responding to suggestions.
