THE EVENT

Since the early 1980's, The Sunset Classic has been a calendar favorite in Northern New Jersey road racing. On Thursday night, June 26th, come celebrate the 26th running of The Sunset Classic. Lots of special treats are in store, including a technical shirt for 5 Milers and the fabulous food and drink that has always been a staple. Hot dogs, ice cream and other summer treats will be waiting for you after running the challenging and picturesque 5 mile course that wends its way through Bloomfield and Glen Ridge. The stadium finish on the track at Foley Field is always a crowd pleaser.

The Sunset Classic also features the Mile Fun Run and our ever popular Kids' Infield Sprints; so bring the entire family as we welcome summer racing at its best. We promise a few surprises, NightMoves DJs and a random prize drawing.

So please join us on Thursday night, June 26th as we host USATF New Jersey as the Open and Masters Women's 5 Mile Championship!
