Overview

Eaten too much at Thanksgiving dinner? You walkin' squatchy! Let's burn some calories and shed a few pounds and inches that we gained from Thanksgiving feasts and run/walk 5k in beautiful South Mountain Reservation for a worthy cause! That is,... to donate some clothing for the homeless veterans in NJ in collaboration with a non-profit organization called Operation Chillout (https://operationchillout.org/). I signed up for the 10K event and am planning to run, but this event is also hiker- and family-friendly without a cut-off time. Better yet, registration is FREE! So, it is a low-key trail race and is perfect for those who might want to get into trail running. Or, use it for your conditioning/training if you are a seasoned trail runner. Even if you are not a runner, it is a great opportunity for all of us, outdoorsy peeps, to #GetOutdoors, #OptOutside and give 'thanks' to those who sacrificed their lives for the nation. You must register for this free event on your own at: http://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=64977 ... no later than Wednesday, November 27 at 23:59 when the registration process closes. The team AMC will meet by the check-in booth at 8:30 for a warm-up. I will bring the green AMC bandanna and wear the AMC baseball cap for you to easily spot me. Let's go squatchy AMC squad!
