The most beautiful course in Hunterdon County....Columbia Trail, Ken Lockwood Gorge, and a chance to conquer the "Beast".The Beautiful Beast of Hunterdon
Hunterdon County NJ, known for it's rolling country hills, picturesque landscapes, and the most beautifully groomed trail in NJ - the Columbia Trail, high above Ken Lockwood gorge...you won't find a more beautiful setting to run in the state...maybe the Northeast....
In conjunction with our friends from the Tewksbury Education Foundation, we've added a 1 mile and 5k distance to complete our 15k championships race! Run above the river and falls, and then wind your way through the gorge as you take in all Hunterdon County has to offer, just before a climb that will provide you the chance to conquer (or be conquered) by the "BEAST" as you head for home!
