I had the pleasure of running this half marathon last year and it was an awesome experience. Scantily clad runners, capes, tomfoolery..What's not to love?! There's the option to register for the half marathon (you run 13.1 miles) or register for the half marathon relay (the first participant runs 5 miles and their partner runs 8.1 miles to finish the race).
About the Race: The event is quickly on its way to becoming one of the largest races in New Jersey. Come out to support Meals on Wheels of Morristown, and don’t forget to wear your favorite superhero costume. Whether you are an elite runner, or a first timer, this race has everything to ensure you have a great running experience! Scenic course, plenty of aid stations, awesome crowd support, cool race shirts and finisher medals, this race has it all! Packet pickup: At the Morristown Running Company from May 15th-18th (to ensure you get the right size) or race morning at the race site.

I'll periodically post updates to the meetup event and email 'yes' rsvps. I'll schedule a pasta dinner the night before the race. Then race day, we can meet up in the morning prior to the event (for a group high five) and post race we'll hit up the Famished Frog or Urban Table for a celebratory meal/to guzzle a ton of beverages.
