Check-in between 7am-8am. ALL RUNNERS MUST BE CHECKED-IN BY 8AM. The race starts at 8:30AM.
All runners will start every mile at the same time. If you finish the mile before the countdown timer ends, you will have to wait at the start/finish until the clock runs out and the next timer starts for the next mile.
For the first mile, the clock will countdown from 18 minutes.
1 minute will come off of the clock every mile for miles 2-7.
30 seconds will come off the clock every mile for miles 8-11.
Starting at mile 12, 15 seconds will come off of the clock every mile until we can crown "THE LAST SQUATCH STANDING”!
Plan on sticking around to enjoy the good vibes and good food. We will have a delicious post-race spread available throughout the event so when you finish racing, you can grab your post-race meal (or you can help yourself during the race if you're one of those iron-stomach runners). AND we are partnering with a few local vendors that will be providing AWESOME SWAG for a raffle that will go-on all day long! With registration you will receive raffle tickets. You (and your family and friends!) can also purchase additional tickets for the raffle (cash only). We will raffle off SWEET SWAG every couple of miles. If your ticket is called, you need to be physically present at the drawing to take home the swag, so make sure you stick around!
Bring 1 NEW pair of socks to the race. No, this isn't Barkley; we will be hosting a sock-drive at the race! We are partnering with "Soxcess". Soxcess was created seven years ago by high school sophomore Jeremy Garriga. As a volunteer at a homeless shelter, he saw that many shelter guests were lacking basics such as new, clean socks. Soxcess was formed to provide those basics to shelters in Hudson County, NJ. Now a Seton Hall University senior, Jeremy continues to advocate for the homeless and needy people throughout the region. In seven years, Soxcess has distributed over 16,000 pair of new socks and many other basics. Along with corporate sponsors such as Bombas Socks, Target Stores, and Lush Cosmetics, Jeremy has been successful in providing donated goods to an even wider range of people and as far as Honduras. Invite your family and friends to participate in the sock-drive!
