Ratstafarian 5K Challenge 

Saturday June 20th 10:00a.m.

I had a wonderful experience competing in the Scary Rat Race. This was my first Scary Rat Race, but am a long time veteran of the Rat Race in Wells Mills Park. You consistently produce a great venue for hosting a trail run. The Allaire State Park is scenic and provides adequate shade to the sun's rays. The start time was perfect and the post-run food, drinks, entertainment, and award ceremony was fantastic. You continue to amaze me on how you can host a challenging trail run and support for the price you charge. Well done and look forward to being a long time veteran of the Scary Rat Race as well.
