About The NJ Winter Trail Series
The NJ Winter Trail Series half marathon in Parsippany, New Jersey on 3 December 2022 is an ideal way to kick off the winter season! This event takes runners through some of the most beautiful trails in Northern New Jersey. The course winds its way past lakes, streams and wooded areas for 13 miles of breathtaking scenery.
The route starts out with a short run along a flat stretch of road before heading into the woods for some rolling hills that take you up and down various small ridges and valleys. As you make your way around these trails you will encounter several different types of terrain including gravel paths, rocky sections, grassy areas as well as mud patches after rain or snowfall. It isn’t too difficult so even if it’s your first time running a half marathon this should still be manageable.
On race day expect temperatures to range from cool to cold but with clear blue skies above you won’t have any trouble keeping motivated throughout the race! Depending on when exactly during December the race falls there may also be a chance of seeing some light snow fall which adds an extra layer of beauty to this already picturesque landscape.
As far as crowds go you can expect plenty of friendly faces cheering everyone along during their journey! Local businesses often set up stands offering snacks and drinks at certain points throughout the course giving participants something extra special to look forward too once they reach each checkpoint. Additionally there are usually volunteers manning various aid stations providing medical assistance if needed as well as moral support from start to finish line!
Overall I would highly recommend participating in this Half Marathon; not only does it provide stunning views but it’s also great fun with plenty going on both before and after crossing that finish line!
