Runners are invited to register for the twelfth annual Mayapple Trail Runs to be held on Saturday May 21, 2022 in beautiful South Mountain Reservation in Essex County, N.J. The races are organized by the volunteers of the South Mountain Conservancy (SMC) with the support of the Essex County Parks Department. We also receive invaluable support from Sassquad Trail Running, which generously provides volunteer support for race timing and general event assistance.

The USA Track and Field sanctioned races provide an informal but supportive trail race environment for runners who are up to the challenge of completing 10 miles, 20 miles, 50K (31 miles) or 50 mile.. All proceeds support the mission of the Conservancy as a steward and advocate for the park and its public programs (go to www.somocon.org for more information).The 50-miler and 50K runners start at 8:30 a.m. with the east loop. 50-milers complete the east loop, west loop, east loop, west loop and finish with one more east loop. 50K runners complete the east loop, west loop and finish with the east loop. 10 and 20-milers start at 9:30 a.m. on the west loop. The 10-milers only run the west loop. The 20-milers do both the east and the west loop. Runners can drop down distances during the race and not be deemed DNF, but will not be counted in the standing for medals. 

There are aid stations roughly every five miles. At the stations, we offer electrolyte drinks and water, granola bars, pretzels and snacks. If you have a special request, please let us know; we will do our best. This an entirely volunteer supported effort, from the race directors to those staffing the aid stations.
