As the birds start to fly south for the winter, it’s time for the Thursday Night Run’s annual migration north to Asbury Park.
Starting Thursday, September 26, we will meet at 6 PM inside Convention Hall in Asbury Park. Unless there’s an event, you can usually avoid paying for parking by parking in the lot behind the Wonder Bar.
Everything else remains the same - typical distance is 4-6 miles. All paces & experience levels welcome. And we still go out to dinner after the run.

All were invited to join the JSRC's annual event to memorialize those from the Jersey Shore who were lost on September 11, 2001. This was not a race. No charge registration fee, no t-shirts, no clock, no bib numbers and no awards. It will be your most memorable run of the year.The run is about 3 miles. Runners started in Belmar with the reading of the first section of names from the Jersey Shore who were lost on that tragic day. We will run in Silence as a group to the September 11 Memorial in Spring Lake where more names will be read by all of the runners and flags and flowers will be placed on the memorial. We will then proceed to a memorial as a group again in silence where the rest of the names will be read. After an additional moment of silence we will return to the start. A post run reception will then be held for all of the participants.Pictures & videos from previous years' events can be found here: https://www.jsrc.org/9-11-memorial-run
