Join us for the 8th annual 4 MILER at Garret Mountain. The event takes place in early Fall at the scenic Garret Mountain Reservation in Woodland Park, NJ. The 4-mile run is challenging with hills and flat sections along a USA Track and Field Certified (USATF) double-loop race course, and features mile clocks, water stops and Chrono Track B-Tag scoring. The event also hosts a 1.5-mile shaded trail walk and kids’ dashes for ages 2-11.

Participants receive custom technical t-shirts and post-race refreshments. The event will include awards, family-fun activities, DJ entertainment, random prize drawings and more.

100% of race proceeds go to St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital and their Child Life Department to provide quality-of-life programs for their pediatric patients. Learn more at https://www.saxllp.com/8th-annual-4-miler-at-garret-mountain

100% of dollars raised from the 4 MILER goes to St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Paterson, NJ. For the past eight years, the 4 MILER at Garret Mountain run/walk event has significantly supported the hospital’s Child Life Department which offers high-impact holistic therapies to the hospital’s pediatric patients, including art therapy, horticultural therapy and animal-assisted therapy. These therapies are funded by outside support and shown to be highly beneficial in mitigating the negative effects of hospitalization, particularly for patients with chronic, life-threatening or terminal illness. Since the event’s inception in 2012, the 4 MILER has raised over $430,000 for the pediatric patients of St. Joseph’s and the event has become the largest financial contributor of the Child Life Department.
