Welcome

Welcome to the South Mountain Running Collective, a USATF-registered club for distance runners in South Orange, Maplewood, Orange, West Orange, Irvington, Newark, Millburn, Summit and adjoining areas of New Jersey. We are informally known as South Mountain Runners.

Our friendly and informal group is open all those who wish to enjoy running, regardless of speed or distance. There are no membership dues, and we have no commercial sponsorship. The sole requirements for membership are that you (1) be a local resident and (2) sign and return a waiver form. See somrunners.org/join for further information.

With that done, feel free to join us at any of our regular weekly runs. We do track workouts on Thursday evenings, Saturday morning long runs on the roads, hill training on Tuesday mornings, and ad hoc trail runs on the weekends in the South Mountain Reservation.

You will likely find all the information you need on this site, but we encourage you to contact us if you need further information.

What's new

South Mountain Runners are out there running contentedly and loving their lives. Come out for a run and we'll tell you all about it.

In other news: after long years of procrastination and delay, we have finally launched the website that you are now viewing. Feel free to share your comments and suggestions.
