It is with a heavy heart that we have to tell you that this year’s LIVE, IN PERSON Action For Distraction is being canceled by The Foundation for Morristown Medical Center out of an abundance of caution for the flu, COVID-19 and other seasonal illnesses, as well as in keeping with the CDC guidelines on social distancing. While we are canceling the live event on May 9th, we ARE keeping the event’s “Virtual 5K” option open!  You can sign up through MIDNIGHT on MAY 9TH!!


8th Annual ^ Action For Distraction 5K

The event that would have been Saturday, May 9th, 2020 in Morristown can now be done ANYWHERE, ANYTIME!  Running has long been seen as a great health benefit, boosting your physical and mental health, reducing stress and more!  Our Virtual Run  allows you to practice social distancing while still supporting Goryeb Children's Hospital!  You sign up, and we'll send you your bib, finisher's medal & t-shirt (to the first 250 registered participants) in the mail!  You can do the 3.1 miles anywhere (even on your treadmill)!

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!
