The Winter Series is back in 2022 for one last running! The team has had fun supporting this PCTI freezing (well not always) fundraiser the last 10 years but its now time hang up these running shoes. So if you have never had a chance to experience the PCTI Winter Series this is your ABSOLUTE LAST CHANCE!
This years event will be super simple. Each of our FIVE (5) IDENTICAL 5K events will be $25 per race or $30 the day of. At YOUR first race you will be provided a SHOE TAG and BIB for all the events you sign up for. Both are DISPOSABLE... no need to return them. If you lose either there will be a $5 replacement fee. We will be providing a gallon zip lock bag to store them both so keep them in your glove box post race. Please note the first four events are capped at 100 runners each race with 200 at the Finale so be sure to sign up for all the races you expect to run from the get go...
ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE THREE (3) FINISHES, ONE (1) of WHICH MUST BE THE FINALE ON FEBRUARY 6TH TO BE AWARD ELIGIBLE. So run TWO (2) of the first FOUR (4) events then the FINALE and you are golden!
IMPORTANT --->>> (PLEASE READ!) Those that have run the series know... we have a COMMEMORATIVE each year. Its been hot and cold but this last one is an absolute keeper. Being the Winter Series Finale, literally, we will be producing an embroidered fleece jacket that you can wear when you want to reminisce about what once was! This fleece jack is optional and costs $50 (lots of embroidery here). You need to order the fleece by 1/3/2022 so please ensure you don't miss this deadline, as once the order is in... well you know. <<<---
Below is the tentative game plan for each Winter Series Race:
A note to those marathon training! The PCTI campus is an extremely safe place to run. Over the years our participants have been known to run the course several times before and after a race to get their mileage in! If you need to clock a few miles be sure to make your way down early BEFORE eacg raceand and get a few in!
See everyone on Sunday, January 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd (skipping, due to National Fencing Championship @PCTI), 30th and Feb 6th! Be safe out there and have a great 2021-22!
Benefactor #1: Passaic County Technical Institute Education Foundation
Founded in 1998, the Passaic County Technical Institute Education Foundation is comprised of local business people whose goal is to provide PCTI students with enhanced educational and scholarship opportunities ensuring an optimal education experience.
Why run the
Winter Fall Series?: Besides helping to support the PCTi Educational Foundation you will absolutely love it, the people and the camaraderie that has developed over the first five seasons is quite telling.
The course is moderately challenging. However its completely closed to traffic.
Inside there are a number of places to stay warm and use the facilities as needed. Lets also not forget about the piping hot "Bagel Stop" bagel you get after each and every race. Access to restrooms will be provided!
Those who have run the Winter Series always come back the following year. The Custodians of this Passaic County campus do a spectacular job keeping the roadways clear. PCTi also has their own police force which is complemented by the Passaic County Sheriff's Office whose HQ and Training facilities are on compound, just around the corner. Talk about safety!!!
If that's not enough... just find someone who has run the Winter Series. They'll tell you why! You can also checkout David Franz of the Highland Hashers kickin' it in 19:26!!!
