Join us on Memorial Day Weekend for the 10th anniversary of this very special event!
The Essex Running Club and Fleet Feet Montclair invite you to join us for this very special virtual event on Memorial Day Weekend in memory of Doug Williams. Doug was a former Montclair resident and beloved member of the Essex Running Club who was killed by a hit and run driver on Upper Mountain Avenue in October 2011. Doug would have been 59 on May 22 this year.
All of the proceeds from the event will go towards the memorial scholarships awarded every year in Doug’s honor to recognize some deserving college bound seniors at Montclair High School who have been outstanding in track and field / cross country while demonstrating academic excellence, leadership and community service. This will be the 10th year we have awarded this scholarship!
You can complete the virtual run any time during Memorial Day Weekend (Fri, May 28 – Mon, May 31). There’s a 5K, 10K or 8 Mile Run and you can pick your own route or run one of the suggested routes. The cost is only $10 per person or you can make a donation to support the scholarship if you are unable to run. All participants will be entered in a raffle for a $50 gift cards to Fleet Feet Montclair.
Disclaimer: Please do not run on unsafe roads or areas that have been closed off to the public. Practice social distancing and follow any other requirements set forth by local, state and federal guidelines.
