CLIFTON, N.J., May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Annual 4 Miler at Garret Mountain is returning to Woodland Park, N.J. for its fifth year on Saturday, September 10, 2016. Sponsored by the SaxBST Foundation, the annual run/walk event has raised more than $230,000 for St. Joseph's Children's Hospital since its inception in 2012.
All sponsorship proceeds will once again be earmarked for the hospital's Child Life Department, which offers quality of life programs to pediatric patients and their families to help decrease the stress and anxiety caused by illness and hospitalization. Nine levels of corporate sponsorship are available, including three exclusive categories.
The popular fall event is held at the scenic Garret Mountain Reservation, a 568-acre landmark located at 288 Rifle Camp Road in Woodland Park, and includes activities for runners and walkers of all ages and skills.
The 4 Miler features a 4-mile run on a scenic USA Track and Field Certified (USATF) double-loop race course as well as a 1.5-mile trail walk. Kids' dashes, with distances ranging from 25 to 200 yards, will be held for children ages 2 to 11. Race-day entertainment includes a DJ, random prize drawings, a variety of children's activities and post-race refreshments.
