Event details and schedule

Packet, Bib # and T-shirt pick up is available Friday evening the 30th from 6:30 pm-8:00 pm at the Hillsborough Family YMCA.


Parking is at a premium.  Streets that are part of the beginning of the race will also be closed to parking by the township.  There is overflow parking at the municipal complex.  We appreciate your assistance with this.


Awards are given from 8&U to Over 85!  Our collectible race glass is a coveted award at this HOP!


An extremely popular part of our race is the Parent/Child category. Only ONE child can be registered with ONE parent.  There are four categories:  Mother/Daughter, Mother/Son, Father/Daughter, and Father/Son.  Each runner's time will be recorded individually, AND the Parent/Child team's time will be the combination of the Parent's and Child's times.  Awards are given out for these categories too.


We also have an award given to the Hillsborough Township School that has the most STUDENTS participating (by percentage).  Since we have started this award, Auten Road Intermediate School (2012) and Hillsborough Elementary School (2013) have won.  


Late-in-person registration is available Friday night the 30th from 6:30 pm- 8:00 pm.  Youth ($25), Adults ($30).  In-person registration is also available on Saturday morning from 6:30 am-7:30 am.  


Unfortunately, most GPS devices do NOT bring you to the Hillsborough Family YMCA if you use our mailing address.  YOU MUST USE 332 SOUTH BRANCH ROAD OR YOU WILL WIND UP MILES AWAY FROM THE Y!  Directions:  From 206 South, make a right on Amwell Road in Hillsborugh (left from 206 North). Continue on Amwell Road to 3rd traffic light at Beekman Lane.  Make right onto Beekman. Make 1st left onto South Branch Road.  (Municipal Complex and finish line are at that corner).  The YMCA is 1/2 mile down on your right.
