We were disappointed to learn that after years of a successful event, the George Sheehan Classic will not occur this year. The race was a high point for many runners due to it’s legendary finish through Red Bank’s Broad Street. It also commemorated George Sheehan, the Monmouth County-based physician who many believe to be the Godfather of recreational running in the country. The Sheehan Classic also marked 1 of 5 events in the Jersey Shore Grand Prix Series, a favorite among shore runners. The race also made our top 5 list of “Greatest Races in NJ” for the past 2 years.
