We regret to inform you that the Survival of the Mills scheduled for September 27th, 2020 has been cancelled due to COVID-19. We are truly sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment this brings.

We tried very hard to make this race happen but due to the nature of the race  with multiple stages and location in the County Park we were not able to safety execute the race this year. If you were registered please look for an email with your options. - Ross (SOTM RD)

 

 

POST-PONED UNTIL 2021

     Survival of the Mills Races

Wells Mills County Park will host a “one of a kind” event this fall. Multisport athletes will be challenged to a very unique and technical 7-stage triathlon or 5-stage duathlon covering a total of about 26+ miles

 

Triathlon

The Triathlon is a continuous 7-stage (run/bike/run/swim/ run/bike/run) race with 6 transitions. The race includes 4 unique trail runs, 2 bike legs on quite rolling country roads and one lake swim.

 

Duathlon

The Duathlon is a continuous 5-stage (run/bike/run/bike/run) race with 4 transitions. The duathlon will be the same distances and course as the triathlon minus the swim.

 

5k Run/Walk

The 5k run/walk will be on the same 3.1 mile course as the final stage of the Tri/Du. The 5k course has beautiful scenic trails and takes you around the wells mills lake. The run also has great single track trails that wind you through tall cedars and over long foot bridges.

    What's the Word

"I am not much of a runner but I want to come out and support a race that is helping raise money for Parker's Army, so I am going to walk the 5k"                           Advocate

Race Director...

 

I have always wanted to have a race at Wells Mills because of the unqiue, beautiful trails it offers. Taking a small idea from the Survival of the Shawangunks Triathlon, I created something unique and special here in NJ with the help of the Wells Mills County Park and Citia Boyscout Camp. You won't find any other race like this around.
