Description

The job of a police officer is a difficult one on the Officers, as well as each of their families.  They work tireless hours at all times, day and night.  They work thru inclement weather, holidays, their children’s birthdays parties, anniversary’s and many other family functions because of their commitment and obligation to their job and community.  Answering calls every day, dealing with an often irate public, often putting themselves  in harms way and often save lives .  The job of a police officer is often thankless yet they get up everyday to protect the public for many they have never met.  We hope this race raises awareness of the difficulties of police officer and of his/her duty to people that they protect.  We hope you consider entering this race, during Police Week,  that celebrates Police and the difficult job that they do.  

Introducing New Jersey’s 10 Miler and 5k.  Arguably the MOST beautifully scenic 10 Miler in New Jersey and the Country.  Runners are never more than a few feet from the water on the looped course. 

This race was created to support the community, and help support a non-profit police organization during Police Week, 2019 where a portion of the proceeds go.  We commend the men and women in Blue and want to say thank you for the sometimes thankless job they do.

The below photos speak for them selves.  Water view for the entire course.  We bet this will be your favorite 10 miler and will agree the course is the most scenic one that you will ever run.

This race is will be the most scenic, but will be one of the most challenging 10 milers that you will do.  There are three bridges on the route while atop of each of them is commanding view of the waterways and buildings of the three towns.   All of the roads have been freshly paved and are fast surfaces to run on . We are bragging that this will be one of the Top Ten Ten Milers in the country, in terms of scenery, course and challenge.  

The downside to running on the bridges is not the downside, but the uphill to get there.  Below is an elevation map of the course.  Although the elevation above sea level is less than 30 feet, the quarter to half mile ascents are steep by South Jersey standards.  Regardless of the course being more challenging than all of the other 10 Mile races in the NY, NJ and Pennsylvania area.  This will be a great early race season event to condition you into top fitness shape.  ‘Tough out’ this early season race, and you will be in great shape for the rest of the race season.
