About The Asbury Park Half Marathon
The Asbury Park Half Marathon, held on April 6, 2024, is an exhilarating race that offers both a challenging course and a chance to support charitable organizations such as the Jersey Shore Dream Center. As the RRCA Eastern Region Championship Race, this event attracts seasoned runners from all over the country.
Starting at 8:30 am on Ocean Avenue in front of Convention Hall, the race takes participants through the beautiful streets of Asbury Park. With its vibrant art scene, lively music venues, and stunning beachfront, Asbury Park provides the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable race experience.
For those seeking an even greater challenge, the Jersey Shore Relay offers a team-based option. However, all runners and teams must complete the race within 5 hours and 30 minutes, ensuring the safety of participants and volunteers. There are cut-off times at various transition points along the course, including Point Pleasant Beach, Manasquan, and Belmar.
Participants are encouraged to register early and ensure accurate information on RunSignUP, including their email and mailing addresses. It is crucial to have accurate details to receive race-related updates and your bib on time. While bibs will be mailed to runners who register before February 1, later registrations may require pick-up at designated locations.
Runners who register by March 1 will also have the advantage of choosing their shirt size. Additionally, there is an option to transfer bibs until March 1 for a $10 fee, providing more flexibility to participants.
Asbury Park offers not only a thrilling race but a host of other attractions and activities. Explore the city’s bustling boardwalk, indulge in its delicious local cuisine, and take in the picturesque views of the Atlantic Ocean. With the weather in April typically being pleasant and mild along the Jersey Shore, runners can look forward to enjoyable race conditions.
