The weekend ahead will be a huge one for the running scene in NJ. We will be covering the action at 2 exciting events. 

start of NJSIAA meet of champions

Saturday marks the finale of the HS Cross Country season as Holmdel Park will play host to the NJSIAA Meet Of Champions. The races start at 11 for the boys and 11:45 for the girls with awards shortly after. As of Thursday morning, the weather channel reports slight winds and temps in the low 40’s for Saturday morning, so fans should bundle up. Best of luck to all the athletes as they run the legendary course and congrats on making it here!



Philly marathon medals

This weekend also marks Philly Marathon Weekend! Sunday will be the half marathon and marathon and this race is one of our favorites. It’s time to channel your inner Rocky Balboa and push your way through the streets of brotherly love. It’s an easy race to love as you pass a spirited crowd, amazing historic sites and extremely rowdy Drexel students cheering you on. The forecast is expected to be warmer (relatively speaking) as the temps climb into the high 40’s/lower 50’s.

Be sure to check back with us after the races for great coverage of both events! Think you’ll forget? Get on our Newsletter!
