Manasquan Mid-Winter Beach Run - by , 05/29/2015
5/ 5stars
"I can tell the number of years I've run the Manasquan Mid Winter Beach by counting the number of sweatshirts in my closet. (8) This 2 Mile Race takes place in February and is the only race I know of that has a ""Blizzard date"". ( Which if I recall they had to use it once or twice) There is nothing better than running through the snow on the sandy beach like we did this year. (Although it did slow down everyone's finishing time) This is by far one of my favorite races. My wife and friends think I'm crazy to drive 180 miles round trip for a 15- 16 minute race but it is well worth the trip. You can not find a better value race around. For $30 you get a scenic 2 mile beach run run which includes a 1/4 mile on Manasquan Beach, a hooded sweatshirt and an awesome post race party at Leggetts in Manasquan. Pizza, pasta, salad all you can eat for free. With close to 2,000 runners and walkers each year the bar is always packed 3 deep. Your drinks are not free. The bar is open pre race and it has been tradition with my running buddies to start our warmups with a few Bloody Mary's. Mary OBrien and Gio the Race Directors run a well organized event. Proceeds benefit the Manasquan First Aid Squad. This is not a USATF sanctioned race. There is no records kept of your times. The first few of the top winners receive awards which include jackets and hats. This is one race you want to add to your running bucket list. look to register in Mid December at Jerseyrunner.com See you all there!"
