First the good news!

The RACE IS A GO! The following link denotes the status of those that have completed 2 Fall Series races at PCTI. If you have only run 1 race you have an individual time you can compare against this report. All results sets can be found under the drop down on the RESULTS PAGE of on Tristate Timing!

Now the bad news...

The Commemorative is hung up in Production and from the looks of it will not make it for Sunday. I will setup a time/place where those entitled (signed up for all 3 Series events) can pick it up. Perhaps mail it as well. I'll review the options post Finale.

After much thought and discussion I have decided to pull the GSP results from the Series standing. Not everyone had a fair chance to signup for the event as registration was abruptly closed provided NJ's change in their social gathering limits which was dropped from 500 to 150 without much warning. To that end Totowa was shutdown by the town and was a nonstarter. Its been a trying time and the Series @ PCTI has pulled through for us all. That being said its from this course will arise the victors! 

Awards alongside a handful of Giveaways will follow the Finale in the Secure Parting Area. There will be individually wrapped snack items available alongside bottled water for those interested.

Important! Be sure to bring your bib back. Place it in your car now so you don’t forget. There will be a bib tester we’re you pick them up alongside the Race #3 Covid compliance form... which all must sign.

That's it! See everyone Sunday, December 6th. Gun sounds at 11am as before!


The PCTI Winter Fall Series is ready to run against Covid-19!  This year's event(s) will be hosted completely outdoors so we are going to need to "Fall" in line!!!

SEPARATE REGISTRATION is REQUIRED FOR EACH TURKEY TROT! Neither event is included in the PCTI Fall Series Registration.

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 race morning and get a few in!

Strict COVID protocols will be followed. Read the waiver when registering!

See everyone on Sunday, November 15th, 29th or December 6th!

Be safe out there and have a great 2020-21!

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 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!!!

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