Jersey Shore Half Marathon - October 8

The Jersey Shore Half Marathon - held Sunday October 8

 Link to Results                Link to 2017 Photos

Presented by the Shore Athletic Club, the Jersey Shore Half Marathon has a history that places it as one of the oldest distance events held in New Jersey and the surrounding area. The first Jersey Shore Marathon was held January 9, 1972. The growth of major fall marathons created a demand for quality half marathon distance races prior to the fall marathons and thus in1986 the Jersey Shore Marathon became the Jersey Shore Half Marathon. The Jersey Shore Half Marathon continues a great racing tradition established forty five years ago.  Link to 2016 photo album
