Last weeks fire shut down the boardwalk between Ocean Grove and Asbury Park. We are pleased to let everyone know that the boardwalk connecting both towns is now back open again. No need to detour around Wesley Lake anymore. Enjoy running along the boards through all the coastal towns again.
The Jersey Shore Running Club's biggest event of the year was completed in Asbury Park this 1st weekend of April. Thank you for all of your support as it helps all of our charities.
