On Saturday, July 29th, come run (or walk!) the historic and scenic Navesink hills and dales! JSRC's 3rd annual Summer Navesink 4 Miler starts (and ends) at Bodman Park in Middletown, NJ. 9AM for the 4 mile run and 9:10AM for the 2 mile walk. This is a perfect mid-summer race to keep yourself in competition shape, and it comes with a great post-race party at Belford Brewing. Registration and full race information can be found here. Registration prices increase on July 2nd so reserve your spot on the starting line today.
The 2023 Monmouth-Ocean County Special Olympics Track and Field Meet will be held Saturday, May 13, 2023 at Long Branch High School.
We need at least 30 (preferably more) volunteers to help with escorting athletes, scoring, timing, awards and other tasks associated with the event. 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.
Online registration for volunteers is now open.
If you volunteer at only one event it should be this one. It’s an inspirational and very rewarding experience!
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.
