New for 2019, we will kick off our season in the southern part of the state on the wonderful trails at Camden County College! In partnership with the Township of Gloucester and the College, this venue promises to be an instant favorite! Expect tight, twisty single track flow with a healthy dose of roots and punchy climbs to keep racers honest.

Race 2: Camp Edge Classic

Camp Edge: Camp Edge Road, Alloway, NJ  08001

Sunday, April 28th, 2019

The Camp Edge Classic is back for 2019! Home to our own Salem County Reactors Team, Camp Edge is a truly wonderful race venue. The team hosts a fundraiser race every fall at the same venue, “Shred the Edge”, which benefits both the camp and the NICA team. The course is approximately 60% twisty singletrack, with short punchy climbs and a really amazing infield. Spectators will enjoy the ample opportunities to see racers throughout the course. The camp has a base lodge which will be serving food, and camping is available on site for Saturday evening. We are so happy to partner with Camp Edge this year to offer the NJICL a truly unique race weekend.


Race 3: Lewis Morris Mania

*Cancelled due to weather!*

Lewis Morris Park: Sunrise Lake Drive, Morristown, NJ  07960

Sunday, May 5th, 2019

Lewis Morris Park is a popular mountain biking destination and no stranger to competition, having been the home of Marty’s Lewis Morris Challenge for many years. The race loop is 2.75 miles long with 300 feet of climbing, and a mix of 1/3 double track, 2/3 sweet flowing single track. Definitely some extra fun stuff to look forward to!


Race 3: Chester Challenge

Highlands Ridge Park: 50-120 North Road, Chester, NJ 07930

Sunday, May 19th, 2019

Beautiful vistas and a great mix of fun single and double track will be greeting us at Highlands Ridge Park (and we promise it will be warmer than last year’s below freezing windchill). Also – waiting for you will be a new stretch of sweet singletrack, crafted by members of the NJICL Core Staff. The grounds surrounding the venue used to be the home of AT&T’s Bell Labs. Be sure to check out the telephone pole farm by the entrance. The race lap is 2.5 miles long with 220 feet of climbing, and it’s definitely a venue that will reward physical fitness.


Race 4: Quick Slick Six

Six Mile Run: 102 Jacques Lane, Somerset, NJ  08873

Sunday, June 2nd, 2019

The NICA course features a fun mix of twisty, punchy single track and power-on stretches of double track. Not a huge amount of climbing (only around 250’ per lap), but definitely enough for you to feel a good sting in your legs.


Race 5: Six Mile Mania Season Finale

Six Mile Run: 102 Jacques Lane, Somerset, NJ  08873

Sunday, June 9th, 2019

Six Mile Mania! We will be running backwards on a slightly different course to keep it fresh and exciting! Please be prepared to stick around for the season finale awards too!
