Grand Opening Celebration

Collage of JJTrail Construction by community volunteers 2015-2020


We are approaching the third annual race weekend on April 18-19 — and it’s time to celebrate!

Major building efforts will be complete prior to the race weekend — and we are planning an event to celebrate.

Green Way Markets in Cross River has graciously agreed to be our hosts the evening before the race on Saturday April 18, from 4-6pm. In addition, Empire Bagels, Dunkin’ Donuts, Salsa Fresca, and others in Orchard Square and Cross River are donating food for the occasion.

We are inviting volunteers, sponsors, donors, runners plus school and town officials, to celebrate this momentous occasion that has been years in the making.

We will thank everyone who has been a part of this successful effort — and then we will have some food and refreshments.

At around 5:30pm anyone who wants a guided walking tour of the trail and the eleven new bridges and boardwalks constructed can take a walk to the JJTrail via the Orchard Square trailhead.

And of course the 3rd annual John Jay Community Races will be held the next day, Sunday, April 19 starting at 9am.

More details and invitations to follow! Let us know if you have any questions.
