Asbury Park 5K 2015 Start.

The Sheehan Classic and Asbury Park race committees are happy to announce the merging of two great events, the Red Bank Sheehan Classic and the Asbury Park 5K will now be the Asbury Park Sheehan Classic. Both races have great traditions and we hope that the running community will continue to support this event. The 5K race and kid’s races will take place on Saturday August 13, 2016 in Asbury Park. Combining the twenty two year history of the Red Bank race with the twelve years of knowledge and constant growth of the Asbury Park 5K should produce one great race with an expected 3,000 participants.

Back to its roots, The George Sheehan Classic began in 1981 as the Asbury Park 10K Classic and quickly became one of the major road running events on the national calendar.  The race moved to Red Bank in 1994 and was renamed to honor the memory of Dr. George Sheehan, the prominent author, philosopher and area physician.  We plan on continuing with the Asbury Park 5k tradition of being a tie-dyed event with the shirts, awards, medals and many other items with the festive colors.IMG_8439
