The Jersey Shore Half Marathon has a history that places it as one of the oldest distance events held in New Jersey and the surrounding areas. The first Jersey Shore Marathon was held in 1972. This USATF-certified course is known for being flat and fast, and a great way to prepare for your fall marathon!  Runners can enjoy a dunk in the Ocean when you are done!
