John Jay Community Trail Race

Sunday April 19th, 2020

Cross River, NY

Official Website


The John Jay Community 5k Trail Race (http://jjtrail.org) is a competitive community race on the new John Jay Community Cross Country Trail. The course starts on the lower fields of the John Jay Campus and quickly goes into the wooded trails adjacent to the middle school and high school. The trails are challenging and hilly in the woods.

The John Jay 4k Trail Walk is a non-competitive walk through the main parts of the John Jay Community Trail. The walkers will start after the 5k runners are in the woods. Most of the trail is the same except for approximately 1k of the southern hill loop that is skipped by the walkers.

Both courses end at the John Jay Contest Field.

Sign up ASAP - first 150 pre-registered runners/walkers to sign up receive a race t-shirt!

The Kids Jay Dash race will take place after the 5k run / 4k walk finish and the race itself will be on the John Jay Contest Field. Start time shown is approximate but we will try to be as close as possible to that time. The first 50 runners to sign up for the kids race get a t-shirt.

(*Note: In order to accommodate 5th graders who turn 11 before the Kids Jay Dash race date, we have set the age calculation to be based on kids age as of 12/31/2020. This means your child's age will appear younger in the registration email if their birthday is in Jan, Feb, Mar, or early Apr. but it will be correct on their race results.)


Runners can create or join teams. There are six classes of teams: F18U, M18U, F19+, M19+, Co-ed 18U, Co-ed 19+.

The single-gender teams consist of THREE runners. The co-ed teams are made up of FOUR runners - two female and two male. Times will be combined to find the best overall teams. Top overall teams in the categories will be recognized at the awards ceremony. 


The John Jay Community Cross Country Trail has been developed and built by student and community volunteers to provide a home course for the Westchester County and New York State Championship John Jay Cross Country teams as well as for the community. If you are interested in helping out, either via donation or volunteering your time, please reach out to us at [email protected] for more information. Thank you!
