"Run from Winter" 10K Race
Middle Earth hosts a 10K run through Duke Island Park every Spring. The event raises funds for Middle Earth and fills a void in the local area for races that are longer than 5K but not a half marathon. Prizes for top winners and t-shirts for all racers are distributed. Get more information by visiting our event page.
A Night At the Ballpark
Every July, the Somerset Patriots host "Middle Earth Night" at TD Bank Ballpark! Families can enjoy a great ballgame, Middle Earth raffles, field activities for the youth, and fun for the whole family! And, there is a FIREWORKS show after the game! Tickets ($10) purchased from Middle Earth helps support our youth programs.
Somerset County 4-H Fair
Every August, visit Middle Earth's hamburger stand at the Somerset County 4-H Fair at North Branch Park, encouraging volunteerism among our youth and raising funds for our agency. You can support us by purchasing food from our tent or volunteering to help with the food preparation!
