The John Jay Community 5k Trail Race (http://jjtrail.org) is a competitive community race on the new John Jay Community Cross Country Trail. The course starts on the lower fields of the John Jay Campus and quickly goes into the wooded trails adjacent to the middle school and high school. The trails are challenging and hilly in the woods.
The John Jay 4k Trail Walk is a non-competitive walk through the main parts of the John Jay Community Trail. The walkers will start after the 5k runners are in the woods. Most of the trail is the same except for approximately 1k of the southern hill loop that is skipped by the walkers.
Both courses end at the John Jay Contest Field.
The Kids Jay Dash race will take place after the 5k run / 4k walk finish and the race itself will be on the John Jay Contest Field. Start time shown is approximate but we will try to be as close as possible to that time.
Note: In September only we can sign you up for a one year John Jay Boosters Club membership ($50) and your 4k race or 5k walk registration is HALF PRICE ($15 instead of $30!). Total cost $65. This is offered only in the month of September. All families should join the JJ Boosters Club as it supports athletes and programs throughout the K-L School District.
(*Note: In order to accommodate 5th graders who turn 11 before the Kids Jay Dash race date, we have set the age calculation to be based on kids age as of 12/31/2019. This means your child’s age will appear younger in the registration email if their birthday is in Jan, Feb, Mar, or early Apr. but it will be correct on their race results.)
The cross country trail has been developed and built by student and community volunteers to provide a home course for the Westchester County and New York State Championship John Jay Cross Country teams as well as for the community.
