GSTC Training Enclaves
Joining the Adidas Garden State Track Club means joining NJ's largest community of active, like-minded people of all ages, abilities, and running experience. We offer ten training enclaves throughout the tri-state area to support the needs of any runner in any part of the state. Once joining the team, you will be placed in contact with both the enclave captain and the Facebook Enclave Group page.
The North Enclave is one of the biggest enclaves of the club, stretching through Bergen, Passaic, and Sussex Counties. Runs start from the Ridgewood Duck Pond, Fleet Feet Monclair, Pompton lakes, Garrett Mountain, and Saddle River Park.
Jersey City Enclave
There is a nice-sized contingent of GSTC'ers in JC, as many team runs go through Liberty Waterfront Park. It's a great place to run and take selfies with the NYC skyline!
Group runs are from the Morristown Running Company every Wednesday night at 6:15 and 9:00am on Saturday mornings. Enclave Captain Heather McDermott leads the crew!
Florham Park Enclave
Group runs usually start and finish at the Florham Park Sneaker Factory, as store owner Joe Jacobs is the enclave captain. He also gives members great discounts on shoes and gear!
The club headquarters is New Brunswick. Thanks to a high population of involved Rutgers community, this is also where many team meetings, team races, and team runs happen. The tow path, Six Mile Reservation, and Johnson Park are group favorites.
This group takes great pride in being one of the team's strongest and biggest enclaves, and most likely the smartest, too. They meet all around the Princeton and Mercer County and often grab dinner after their enclave runs.
Kyle Clonan organizes this group that meets between Mercer and Ocean counties. Boardwalk runs, meetings at Holmdel, and Manasquan Reservoir meet-ups are common! Currently, they meet Tuesdays at Holmdel and Wednesday at Point Boro HS for a track session.
This group encompasses much of Camden County and greater Philadelphia. Wissahickon Trail is a favorite, along with numerous other trail runs along the river and through the city.
The Wild West Enclave meets often at the Columbia Trail, but usually they keep their cowboy hats and boots at home. While a bit distant from the rest of the state, this enclave may have the most scenic runs of any!
