Musconetcong Watershed Association Hosts Run for the River

The Musconetcong Watershed Association (MWA) hosts its 19th Annual Run for the River on Sunday, May 5. Run or walk a scenic 4-mile loop in Asbury (Warren County), NJ.

Participants will pass streams, pastures, historic buildings and the beautiful Musconetcong River on this mostly flat, family-friendly course.  Afterward, there are awards presented to the top runners in 12 age categories as well as best overall.  There is also a free raffle open to all of those who participate and free tethered balloon rides (courtesy of Unity Bank).  Registration is only $30 and includes a commemorative t-shirt, while supplies last.

“This really is a great community event,” said Alan Hunt, MWA Executive Director. “Local businesses donate to the free raffle as well as provide participants with bagels, oranges and water to keep everyone satisfied and hydrated, and a local DJ keeps the event lively.”

Held rain or shine, the event starts at Asbury Fire Company, 410 Old Main Street, Asbury (Franklin Township, Warren County), NJ 08802. Registration opens at 8:30 a.m.; Walkers start at 9:45 a.m., Runners start at 10 a.m. Click here to register online.

The Run for the River is the largest annual fundraiser for MWA to-date, and funds generated from this event will be used to support our education program, water quality monitoring program, hiking and paddling trips, ‘River Talks’, and more.
