American Mile Virtual Run

Due to Covid 19, we have made the tough decision to turn this year’s American Mile into a virtual run. We were projected to have around 1,000 registered runners and we can not safely run the race with that many people. That being said, this is our biggest fundraiser for our volunteer fire department. We had to cancel our Memorial Day coin drop, missing out on another fundraising opportunity. We are asking for you to still sign up and submit times. Every runner signed up before June 20th will be guaranteed a 2020 American Mile T-shirt. The shirts will be handed out at the Longport Firehouse on July 4th, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm for those who register online before June 20th. Please register online to help support the Longport Volunteer Fire Department.

THERE WILL BE NO SAME DAY REGISTRATION. You must register before June 20th!   

Longport Fire House
2305 Atlantic Ave
Longport, NJ US 08403


Race signups are inside the Longport Fire House at 2305 Atlantic Ave.  Preregistration is ONLINE. The day of race registration will take place at the firehouse from 9am-1pm and 4pm-6pm. New this year: the race begins at 6:30pm at the FIREHOUSE (23rd and Atlantic). We will run South towards the point and have a turnaround at 14th Avenue. The finish line will be the same as the start line and the race will conclude back at the firehouse. This will be a 1/2 mile down, turn, and 1/2 mile back run.   (Tee-shirts available for the 1st 500 applicants)
