RACE FEATURES:
WATER & FLUIDS on at least 3 locations on our 10K course- they will stay in place for three hours.

Whatever food we can get which usually includes bagels, bananas, granola bags, & more if my mom and aunt cook up any cold pasta salad.
Lots of parking & bathrooms, but arrive EARLY and ready to run. NO finisher's medals nor shirts- you already have enough and we can keep the cost down! But if I have some good leftovers from other races you can take them!

Multi-distance option. You can run 10k, 20k or 30K. But the 30K is the featured event and has been for almost 20 years.

AWARDS: I am working on it...
DIRECTIONS: use the Beach House restaurant on Dorne Rd in your GPS
FROM 95 NORTH: North exit 30 Lordship Blvd. Bear right off exit. Stay on this road thru 7 lights & bear left at 7th light-about 1 mile from Rte 95 & continue straight! At the last light (you will see a Dunkin Donuts/strip mall on the left) take RIGH There onto Main St. Go approx 4/10 mile (past airport runway on right) & take next left on Dorne Rd. to Short Beach entrance. Drive to the back lot.
DIRECTIONS FROM 95 SOUTH: Take Exit 31- South Ave. Left off exit, under 95, and proceed 1/2 mi to 4 way light. Take right at light onto Main St. Stay straight on Main St. approx 1 mi, past airport runway (on right) to first left – entrance to Short Beach.
Merritt Parkway N/S: - Get to Rte 95 somehow (like Rte 25 or Rte 7) & follow directions above- it’s a lot easier…
SORRY- NO PETS ALLOWED AT THE PARK - not my rules- don't shoot the messenger. BUT it is a great course to push a baby stroller. The roads are open, but they are very flat and it is a quiet neighborhood.
