New Jersey 5K
The best way to begin race weekend, whether you are warming up your legs for the longer stuff on Sunday or striving for a PR, is on the boardwalk at the 5K. This 5k race kicks off the RWJBarnabas Health Family Day. If you have separation anxiety with the ocean, this course is for you, as the 5k is entirely contained on the Long Branch Boardwalk.
New Jersey Half & Full Marathons
Sunday, April 29, 2018 brings the New Jersey Half and Full Marathons! Run in the shadows of the shore’s iconic music joints, retrace the footsteps of Springsteen, and cruise past the endless beach towns of Ocean Grove, Allenhurst, Deal, Monmouth Beach, Loch Arbour, and Long Branch.
The Half and Full Marathon courses offer the best of the Jersey Shore. They are flat and fast with miles of boardwalk in between. The courses are the same, except with the full marathon continuing down the beaches and boardwalks an extra 13 miles!
Grab your friends, family, or co-workers and run the first-annual Novo Nordisk New Jersey Marathon Relay! Four runners will work together to run one marathon! Relay teams are welcome to reconvene with 1/4 mile left and finish the race together!
8.6 miles – Runner 1
