About The JUNGLE ESCAPE – Way Over Yonder Trail Run Series #1

The Jungle Escape Way Over Yonder Trail Run Series #1 in West Milford, New Jersey is an exciting and challenging half marathon that takes place on April 1st, 2023. The route of the race winds through the lush forests of North Jersey, creating a unique and beautiful running experience. With plenty of hills to keep runners challenged throughout their journey, this trail run is one for experienced athletes looking to push their limits.

The typical weather in early April makes for great running conditions with temperatures usually getting into the mid-50s Fahrenheit during the day – perfect for tackling tougher terrain with cooler air helping runners stay energized throughout the course. But don’t be fooled by these pleasant temps; you’ll need to bring your best game as there are several steep climbs along this challenging 13 mile route!

As you make your way through winding trails lined with tall trees and dappled sunlight shining down from above, it’s easy to see why this area has been dubbed “the jungle”. There’s no shortage of wildlife around either – expect to find plenty of deer or even a few wild turkeys if you’re lucky enough!

The crowds at this event tend to be very supportive and welcoming – most participants have been doing these races since they were kids – so it’s not uncommon to get some encouraging words from other runners while out on course. As an added bonus, all finishers will receive a special commemorative medal at the finish line – perfect for displaying those proud memories once they cross that final threshold!

Overall, I’d highly recommend anyone looking for a unique challenge check out Jungle Escape: Way Over Yonder Trail Run Series #1 in West Milford, New Jersey on April 1st 2023! With its scenic routes and friendly atmosphere (not too mention some memorable experiences), it’ll definitely prove worth every step taken!
