Miles for Matheny essentials

The Lu Huggins Wheelchair Walk is back downtown for the first time since 2009.

If you’re planning to attend Miles for Matheny on Sunday, April 22, and you haven’t registered, on-site registration begins at 9 a.m. in Liberty Park in downtown Peapack.

Parking for all participants – except cyclists – is provided at the Pfizer facility off of Route 206 North (Pfizer Way) in Peapack.

Shuttle buses between Pfizer and Liberty Park will run continuously throughout the day from 8:30 a.m.-3:15 p.m. Parking is FREE.

Travel time is about five minutes. Cyclists only may park at the Peapack train station, the Gladstone train station or the Peapack-Gladstone Bank at 190 Main St. in Gladstone.
