DandR Canal Towpath Training Run

DandR Canal Towpath Training Run
Saturday, Jun 1, 2024
Grove 3, Johnson Park

RVRR’s ‘Train’ing Run is a non-competitive Group Run held to celebrate National Trails Day
and benefits the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey. We donate $.50 for every mile we run or walk! 

Run part, or all, of the 34.9 mile D&R towpath together in a group! Register for the bus to take you to the distance/pace start you wish to participate in. Changes are possible by logging in to your runsignup account - you can switch events up to the day before the run as long as there is space on the bus you wish to transfer to.

Additional details can be found at www.rvrr.org/events/training-run

Groups of runners (called ‘trains’) will run (travel) at pre-determined paces to Grove # 4 in Johnson Park in New Brunswick (the destination station).

Starting in Trenton with small groups of runners who are challenging themselves to go the entire distance, the ‘trains’ will add additional runners (passengers) who join (board their ‘train’) at the speed they want to travel. By the end, one massive group of runners and walkers will be moving in a continual train along the Towpath. Trains will have an official pacer (conductor) to keep these trains on schedule. Trains stop at each ‘station’ along the way, and from Alexander Road to the end there is fuel (water and/or snacks) available. All trains are scheduled to reach the destination at 11 a.m. to rest, feast and celebrate a day of running camaraderie.

Join us for the best running day of your life!
