A note to those marathon training! The PCTI campus is an extremely safe place to run.

If you need to clock a few miles be sure to make your way down early, race morning and get a few in before, during and after the Finale!

See everyone on Sunday, Jan 26th!

Be safe out there and have a great 2020!

Event Detail

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.


  • To foster supportive community and private sector relationships to service the interest and needs of the students.
  • To inform the community about the strengths and challenges faced by PCTI.
  • To provide mini-grants to students to develop innovative programs and activities in science and technology, fine and performing arts, language research and culture.
  • To provide small grants to PCTI educational staff members to initiate quality projects consistent with the goals of the Foundation and to bring positive attention to PCTI.
  • To provide scholarships to students of PCTI for post-secondary opportunities.
  • To make distributions, for educational purposes, to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under Section 501 (C) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code or any successor statute.
  • To seek donations of equipment and funds from business or individuals to support the Foundation’s educational goals and purposes.

Why run the Winter 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.

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!!!

Directions:  Course: Certified Winter Series 5K Course  (adjusted slightly for STEM & AUTObuilding construction... course certification pending)
