The Apple Chase is one of the older 5K and mid distance runs in Northern NJ. It is being brought back to its original glory, once again only this time by those that initially stated it. SPA23 and the Chilton Memorial Foundation are now involved with Main Street Marketing & Events to put the Apple Chase on the fast track once and for all.
To ensure its longevity the event will be relocated from its Pequannock Regional High School location to Greenview Park. Dont worry, both the 5K and new 12K courses will cover much of the same Terrain. We are simply moving the event to a location that is more acclimated to the desires of Pequannock Township. Here are some of the initial details. More to follow…
