Best Race Ever…Nova Nordisk NJ Marathon and Half Marathon Preview

We caught up with Christine Bosco, the Race Director for this Sunday’s Nova Nordisk NJ Marathon and Half who was kind enough  to share her thoughts on the event. She is tremendously excited about the event and it promises to be a great one. This year marks the 20th anniversary of one of the greatest races on the planet. Bosco expressed her appreciation for both the spectators as well as the athletes for their participation. She also commended the 8 municipalities that the race passes through for all their help and support. While the 5k is full, registration is still open for the full, half and the relay. Runners can still sign up at the Expo on Friday night or Saturday. She noted that this race is “A big time marathon in a small town” making it a special race. “Both the community involvement and the iconic course make this race so legendary,” she added.

This Saturday’s RunAPalooza

For many, this Saturday’s RunAPalooza marks the start of the race season. Thousands will flock to one of our hippest shore town’s for not 1, but 3 incredible races.  The Asbury Park Half, the Jersey Shore Relay and the Jersey Shore 5K all make up this legendary collection of races. All registration is closed at this point, so if you haven’t registered yet, go out and cheer.

While the Half marathon and he 5k both start and end in Asbury Park, the Relay sends 5-person teams up the coast from Seaside to Asbury.  The early forecast looks promising and we wish all the runners the best of luck. This event is truly a blast…enjoy some pics from last year…
