    First time running this event and I will definately do it again. Course was great, and for a slow runner like me I felt very comfortable among the runners and walkers. This is my Club’s race and the best part was seeing so many friends on the course and volunteering. Anyone looking for a great race needs to add this one to their list

    There are many Hangover races around the country I’m sure but the one in Tamaques Park, Westfield, NJ is the one I’m reviewing here. It is a great race put on by the Central Jersey Road Runners Club. The race is organized and managed by the running club – every one on the committee is volunteering their time and talents to this event. This year was the 33rd Annual, so they are doing something right. With steady year over year growth, there were just under 800 finishers in 2015.

    Pre-registration is only done online, but day of race registration is allowed. One of the biggest “draws” of this race is the comfy, cozy “hoodie” when most other 5ks are still offering cotton tee shirts. This year’s hoodie which featured a “road runner” and the club’s logo was designed by a club member.

    Another fun aspect is the post-race hot chocolate and bagels. This year they also were pleased to receive a nice donation of Larabars which were a huge hit.

    The course utilizes the oval roadway within Tamaques Park for 1 1/2 loops, then ventures out into local neighborhood streets in the upscale town of Westfield, NJ before returning to the park for another 3/4 of a loop to the downhill finish.

    Awards are given to the top 3 Male/Females, the top 3 Masters Male/Female, and the top 3 M/F in five year age groups.

    Over the years the race has become a family tradition and at least 80% of the field are runners who return year after year.
