The race benefits the Open Door Food Pantry of Freehold. The title of this event has a connection to Bruce Springsteen, famous American songwriter, singer and guitarist, who was raised in Freehold and has an album by that name: Born to Run.

This year's Hashathon was GREAT! The Fall 6 mile trail classic (38th annual) was held on Sunday, November 12th. Congratulations to Overall Winners Christian Cleary and Lynn Nelson.
The race was challenging, but nearly everyone finished intact. This is definitely not "golf course" caliber Cross County. The Hashathon course is hilly, rugged, covers plenty of uneven stairs, roots, logs and so much more.
