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 course. Medals will be presented to best overall as well as those who place top in 12 age categories, and a free raffle is offered to all participants. This is a family-friendly event, and Unity Bank has sponsored tethered balloon rides free for all attendees!
The Run for the River is an annual fundraiser for the Musconetcong Watershed Association (MWA). MWA is a non-profit organization formed to protect and improve the Musconetcong River and its watershed resources through education and outreach programs to local schools, landowners and municipal officials. In addition, MWA conducts river clean-ups and stream bank restoration projects.
Funds generated by the MWA Run for the River will be used to support the MWA Education Program, River Watcher citizen scientist program, hikes/paddles, River Talks and more.
