Cherry pit 
The 2018 Cherry Pit 10 Mile Race will be held Sunday, May 13th at South River High School. This is the 2nd Leg of the Championship Series and our  39th year!

The date of the race had to move from the first week in April to the second week in May because of scheduling conflicts at the high school.  We think this new date will work out well. Now it is not so close to the B&A Marathon. Also, the weather should be warm but not hot; and after the race you will still have plenty of time to go out to your Mother’s Day brunch. 

VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED! Please see specific needs listed below.
