Come join the Clinton Township Country Run in celebrating our 15th year on April 29, 2017!! Again, we have been honored by NJ USA Track and Field organization to be awarded the Championship race for the 15K race. This event is sanctioned by USA Track & Field. The Country Run is supported by a 100 person volunteer staff to help uphold the honor and responsibility of the Championship title.
All entrants receive a pre-shrunk, 100% cotton long sleeve t-shirt. This year we are expanding the selection of shirts to include women’s styles in Small, Medium and Large in addition to the standard Youth and Adult sizes. All races start and finish in Bundt Park just off Route 31 in Clinton Township and include energizing warm-up music and food.
The 1 mile race is within the Park boundaries and very flat. This is a great race for family members of every age as all those who cross the finish line receive a medal.

The 5K course leaves Bundt Park and loops through local neighborhoods with nice rolling hills. It includes one water stop at the halfway mark.
