8TH ANNUAL ACTION FOR DISTRACTION 5K 

Saturday, May 9th, 2020

Loantaka Brook Reservation, Morristown, NJ

You never know when illness or injury is going to strike a child in your life or the life of someone you know. The Action For Distraction 5K was started when a 10 year old from Long Valley realized the importance of being distracted while in the hospital. Zach Rice was in perfect health one minute, and spent the next two years in and out of hospitals with a rare septic hip infection and resulting Avascular Necrosis. Come support Zach, along with this year's "Face of the Race," who has recently  needed Goryeb Children's Hospital like Zach did, along with the 50,000 kids who need treatment there each year!

Skeleton Run Course Map

The Skeleton Trail Run is a challenging scenic course located in Central Park that takes you along a combination of surfaces from paved to gravel to grass. And in fitting with our Halloween theme, be on the lookout when you hit a wooded area ... you never know what (sort of) spooky things may be lurking in the woods! The race starts between the playground and the ice rinks. Follow the orange arrows for approximately one mile, then the black arrows, followed by a little over a mile on the blue path to make up your 3.1 mile fun run! Looking at the map is almost as terrifying as some of the characters that will be jumping out at you ... don't let it scare you! The course is RIDICULOUSLY well marked!
