The Flatliner is an addictive and challenging, hilly road running series held on the park roads of Emery Park (for 2022 only) Chestnut Ridge Park. A paved and hilly forest road 3-mile course makes the Flatliner a must-do and heart thumping run.

Complete any three and you're automatically qualified for series awards at the final race. TEST YOURSELF! Weekly door prizes and give-aways. Awards are not issued for individual races. Race it or walk it-all are welcome to take part in the series or individual weekly events. Pre-register for the series and save time at check-in or sign-up for individual races every week.
