Save the dates now so you don’t miss anything or anyone! We have a full slate of activities planned for runners of all levels.

Thursday, February 7 – ERC Happy Hour
Just Jake’s, 30 Park Street, Montclair
Stop by for a drink and to relax with fellow runners. Find out how they get out the door in the cold winter months and be inspired to do the same. Racing season is just around the corner. Bring your USATF questions to this event.

Sunday, March 3 – Blowing Blowout with Clifton Roadrunners
5:30 – 8:00pm
Brunswick Zone, 679 Washington Avenue, Belleville
Start practicing your approach early. The 4th annual bowling event combines food, fun, and friendly competition at the lanes rather than the races. Sign up early. This event always sells out.
Registration details and form

Tuesday, March 5 – ERC General Meeting
Fitzgerald’s 1928 Side Car, 13 Herman Street, Glen Ridge

Club and team races begin in March. Learn more about racing in New Jersey, USA Track and Field, and the Grand Prix competition from two of the top running experts in the state at the March meeting. Even if you aren’t a “racer” this is a great opportunity to meet and mingle with your fellow club members and learn more about our sport.

He will talk about race timing and scoring, explaining the various services his company provides for all types of running events and to USATF-NJ for the Grand Prix competition.
