9/11 Memorial Run - JSRC Remembers

Run, Remember, Reflect and Resume. 22 years on, and it is still our duty and our honor to remember those who were lost on that terrible day in 2001.  Once again the club had the distinct honor to organize and lead a memorial silent run on Monday, September 11, 2023. This solemn event has become a cornerstone of our annual calendar and we encourage you to join us next year in this moving and meaningful tribute to those members of the Jersey Shore community who were lost on that tragic day.


Summer 2023 - Thanks for the Memories!

As we put a bow on Summer 2023, it's the perfect time to look back at all the fun we've had as an organization during the supposedly lazy, hazy days of summer!  Certainly not much lazing about with a packed schedule of volunteering opportunities, club races, area races and a few parties thrown in for good measure.  The Terry Bolan 5K, The Navesink 4, Saturday in the Park, JSRC Day at the Races & The Belmar 5 are just a few of the events from this year. Check out the photos below for a quick glimpse of the summer fun!

2023 Special Olympics Track Meet

The 2023 Monmouth-Ocean County Special Olympics Track and Field Meet will be held Saturday, May 13, 2023 at Long Branch High School.

Volunteers should plan on being at the high school by 8:30 AM. The meet is usually over by 2 or 3 PM. If you can't be there by 8:30 or can't stay the entire time, that's fine. Just let us know ahead of time so we can be sure we have appropriate coverage.

The Lake Como Spring Break 5K 2023 Is In The Books


Another wet and windy day dawned on Saturday April 29th for the Lake Como Spring Break 5K, and yet several hundred runners proved their mettle and braved the elements for another successful and fun JSRC event benefitting Team Shamrock and Tunnel to Towers.  

Thanks to Bar Anticipation for their partnership and support and for another fabulous post-race "Bar-A Bar-B-Q Bash" giving everyone a chance to celebrate their accomplishments, replenish their carbs and dry out their soggy running shoes!  Thanks also to all the volunteers and race organizers who braved the elements to ensure a successful day.

Congratulations to all the overall, age group and category winners.  Official race results available here.

RunAPalooza 2023 - Another Successful Year


On Saturday, April 1st, JSRC was once again the proud sponsor and host of the best running festival on the Jersey Shore - RunAPalooza 2023.  

Combining a simultaneous start 5K, a Half Marathon and a Relay Marathon with the sites and sounds of historic Asbury Park and the surrounding shore communities, this is always a favorite on the annual Jersey Shore race calendar.  

Despite the soggy, windy & chilly weather; nearly 3,000 runners braved the elements across the three races and celebrated their efforts with a boardwalk finish as thee rain was starting to abate and a fantastic after party at Porta restaurant.  

The best part of the day, was the over $90,000 raised for local Jersey Shore charities!  Looking forward to RunAPalooza 2024 on April 6, 2024 - Mark Your Calendars!

Got Sneakers Fundraiser for Shore Regional


Not too late to donate! - Bring your sneakers to the Lake Como 5K on Saturday, April 29th!

Did you know that your gently worn sneakers could help raise money for the Shore Regional XC and Track Team

Well, they can and here’s how…JSRC is helping Shore Regional in their fundraiser with the organization At the next club meeting on April 25th, in Monmouth Beach, bring your gently worn, lovingly used, or brand spanking new sneakers along with you and we'll have a donation box where you can drop them off. We all have sneakers that we no longer want; maybe you’ve out-grown them, they’re out of style, or out of season, maybe you have a jinxed pair that kept you from achieving that PR.  Time to clean out that closet!

You can also ask neighbors, friends, co-workers, and anyone in your social networks to help out. Every pair counts!

The sneakers that we all collect will help raise money to support Shore Regional's XC and Track Team AND will help our environment by keeping sneakers out of landfills.
