Founded in 1983, Essex Running Club touts itself as "New Jersey's friendliest running club."

We welcome runners of all ages and abilities, and offer group runs from Montclair's Fleet Feet Sports on Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings and social runs from various members' homes in the winter and summer.  

Club meetings, featuring a variety of running/fitness-related topics and speakers, are the second Monday of each month at 8pm.  Details are updated on the social calendar.

Essex Running Club is managed by a volunteer board of directors.
