Check-in and Lodging
The race will begin and end at Crowley’s Landing, in Hammonton, New Jersey. If you’re interested in camping the night before, there is a great campground across the street, in Wharton State Forest. You need to make reservations ahead of time.
For those doing the eight-hour race, registration will open at 7:00am, and the course will be open from 8:00am to 4:00pm.
For those doing the four-hour race, registration will open at 10:30am. We will hold a navigation clinic for new racers at 11:15am, and the course will be open from 12:00pm to 4:00pm.
We will have snacks and post-race festivities for everyone at the finish line.
The gear list is available here. Please be aware that you will likely encounter ticks out on the course. For this reason, we highly encourage you to wear long pants and come prepared with bug spray or lotion. We will have tick removal tools available at the finish.
We could use a few additional volunteers for race day. If you have family or friends who plan to travel with you that weekend and might be interested in helping out for all or part of the day, let us know. They would earn a credit toward a future Rootstock event (transferable to you, if they’re not racers!).
