8TH
ANNUAL

To Benefit the Steeplechase Cancer Center

AND… 2 Mile Walk

THE EVENT

Get ready to choose between a challenging 10K and a very fast 5K. The 8th annual Steeplechase Distance Run, on September 25th, will feature two terrific courses and great runner amenities; one of the most enjoyable events in the state.

The 10K is set on flat and rolling Hillsborough roads featuring mile clocks, multiple energy stations and a challenging test of speed and endurance. The fast 10K and 5K courses run through well manicured neighborhoods with long straightaways. The 5K is a quick loop and very fast.

We also offer a 2 Mile Walk for all and Kids Sprints for children from age 2 to 11 at distances of 25 to 150 yards. Our amenities are terrific including the Steeplechase Distance Run t-shirt while supplies last. Great refreshments and a DJ also await our participants.

Our 2 Mile Walk is for everyone; moms. dads, kids, grandparents, other relatives and friends. The Steeplechase Cancer Center invites you to walk with us through some very pretty neighborhoods with the options of 2 miles or 1 mile. We are dedicated to providing healthy lifestyle choices for all so please come walk with us. And don’t forget to bring the kids for our fun and exciting Kids Sprints.

So, whether you love the challenge of a 10K or want a fun 5K, Steeplechase is just for you. Hillsborough is easy to get to via Routes 78, 287, 22, 202 or 206 and close to all northern New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania areas.
