Since this is a ten mile evening race, it will be dark by the time walkers and extremely slow runners finish.  This creates a safety hazard.  Consequently, a time cap of 2 hours and 30 minutes is necessary.  When the race clocks reach 2 hours 30 minutes Compuscore will begin the process of breaking down the finish line, medical assistance will leave, and the refreshment area will close.

High quality heavyweight, multi color print T-shirts to the first 1000 online registrants.  Shirts not claimed by pre-registrants at race packet pick-up will be distributed to race volunteers.

There will be male and female divisions for the following categories:

Trophies first through tenth place finishers.
Trophies to first and second place winners of the following age groups: (16 and under), (17-19), (20-24), (25-29), (30-34), (35-39), (40-44), (45-49), (50-54),  (55-59), (60-64), (65 -69), (70 and over).
No duplication of awards.  The top ten finishers in the male and female divisions are not eligible for age group trophies.

Team plaques and individual medals to each scoring member in the following categories:

First and second place running clubs.
First place beach patrol.
First place corporate team.
Awards ceremony will be held at the beach patrol headquarters, 44th Street and Promenade, at 7:30 PM.  The beach patrol does not mail trophies, medals or plaques to individuals who are not able to stay for the awards ceremony.

The number of entries allowed per team or beach patrol is unlimited.  The first four runners across the finish line will score for a team or beach patrol.  All members must complete their own registration form.

True team scoring, also known as cross country scoring, is the method of scoring that will be applied to determine winners.   To represent a particular beach patrol or corporate team a runner must have, in 2024, worked 30 days prior to race day for the organization being represented.   

In September of 1999, Sea Isle City Beach Patrol said goodbye to former lifeguard Peter R. Bossow, Jr. after he lost his battle with testicular cancer.  Prior to his death at age thirty, Peter founded For Pete's Sake Cancer Respite Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing respite vacations for adult cancer patients and their families.  Since his death, For Pete's Sake has been sending families on weeklong respites to donated homes along the Jersey Shore and to other vacation locations along the East Coast. These unforgettable and lasting vacations provide cancer patients and their loved ones the opportunity to strengthen, deepen, and unify their relationships.   

The beach patrol encourages individuals and teams to support FPS by making a donation when registering.  You will receive a thank you and receipt for this donation directly from For Pete's Sake.

For more information about For Pete's Sake and its mission, visit  Jersey Shore home owners can also visit For Pete's Sake website to initiate the process of donating their summer home for one week.
