ABOUT THE EVENT
The Run O' The Mill is a road 5K race in Clinton, NJ founded by hometown Olympian, Julie Culley. Julie envisioned the St. Patrick's Day Weekend event as a community celebration; an act of gratitude for the town that embraced her and her training group, the NJ★NY TC, in the years and months leading up to the 2012 Olympic Games. The goal is to provide a forum for runners, businesses, and community members alike to share in a 5K, the distance Julie covered in the London Olympic Stadium, and continue to foster the rich legacy of distance running and philanthropy in Hunterdon County.
