Race Testimonials

“The First Annual Running of the Lions was an outstanding event for the entire North Hunterdon Community. The run gathered people from all of the many areas in the NHHS family. The North Hunterdon Education Foundation did a great job organizing the event. The morning run was well planned and executed. It was another great day to be part of North Hunterdon.”

“The Running of the Lions is great example of the dedication our North Hunterdon community exhibits for our Education Foundation in a fun and productive way. It is professionally run and organized which creates the perfect atmosphere to bring the entire family, and I look forward to the second annual event.”

“What a great inaugural race, really well organized. I am looking forward to keeping this race on my calendar as a Must Run for years to come. If you participate in just one race a year, make it this one. Really looking forward to the career and college resource center for my kids.”
