Group Description

Welcome to Somerset Runners, a group of people in the Somerset County, NJ area who are interested in running (plus other sports). We use this website to let others in the Group know about running plans, races we will be doing and to keep in touch.

We have two "Usual Weekly Sunday Runs":

1. Delaware & Raritan Canal Towpath at Blackwells Mills
Parking: Blackwells Mills Causeway Parking Lot, west of Canal.
Parking Alternate if Causeway is Closed (flooded): Park Service Headquarters on Canal Rd just slightly south of the Causeway; east side of the Canal. Access Canal Rd from Amwell Rd (Rt 514). If in doubt, use the Canal Rd access route, which will also take you past the Causeway.
Time: 8:00 am (winter, usually beginning 1st Sunday in Nov) 7:30 am (summer, usually beginning Memorial Day w/e) Look for a notice from the Group. Note that those going for longer runs or with special needs may start any time they want. If you post a different time, maybe someone else will show up!
Time: 8:05 am or 7:35 am (to allow for watch & time errors).
Distances (south): It's 5 mi to/from the spillover; 7 mi to/from Griggstown. You can figure out other distances from the mile markers.
Paces: Whatever you're comfortable with. Typically, we go from 7/8 minute miles to 10/11+ minute miles. If you are injured or need to walk, you're still welcome. Open to all!

2. Duke Farms, Hillsborough, NJ
