A most memorable run to memorialize all who were lost on September 11, 2001. Tim Mahoney led a group of about 200 runners and instructed them on the event. The theme was to "run, reflect and resume". Accordingly the runners kept silent on their run to the 9-11 Memorial in Spring Lake and on to the turn around point on the Sea Girt border on the beach so they could "reflect" on the significance of that day.. At the turn around point a piece of the World Trade Center was placed and the runners gathered around it. After reading the final portion of the names of those lost on that tragic day - the runners left flowers and flags. The runners were then instructed to "resume" their lives and ran back to the start breaking their silent vigil..
