Tired of the same old neighborhood roads, traffic, bad drivers? Join the off-road runners for a great and unusual training run.  See the swamps and wooded areas saved from development. The Rumson Hash House Harriers again return to the woods and marsh of Edison. Hashing is not a race but a non-competitive group run which follows an off-road course laid out with baking flour. If you like trail running without the competition of a formal race, this will be a fun switch for you. This is a complex and different course through woods, grass, swamp and marsh.  Wear old running shoes.

VOLUNTEERS RECEIVE A SHIRT AND OPEN BAR. POST RUN SOCIAL HELD AT THE GREEN DERBY BAR, SITE OF THE "ON-ON" PARTY. You must be over 21 years old to participate.  A sense a humor is a must. Prizes and giveaways at the post-race social.
