Social Activities

The club sponsors a variety of gatherings that stimulate camaraderie amongst the membership. The meetings are another chance to find runners that would help you build an informal running group based on pace and distance preferences. Examples are: informative general meetings, Picnics/Pizza parties, after-race assemblies, and the Bus to the NYC Marathon. Check the Bulletin Board often for upcoming events.

The two major social events of the year however, are the NJM’s Award Banquet and the Ridgewood Run. The annual Awards Banquet in January is a chance to celebrate the Club’s success and to recognize our members for their accomplishments. Check the Awards Page to view the available Award categories and past achievements by club members. Most important of all is the organization and execution of the Memorial Day Ridgewood Run. For more than thirty years this race is the must-run race in New Jersey and beyond. Runners have come from as far away as Texas to the West, and Leighton Lodge in England to the East. It’s our responsibility to put our best foot forward and put on the best show of the year for all Ridgewood Run participants: Fun Run, Mile runs, 10K, and 5K. The club’s members, family, and friends have done just that since 1976.
