Part of RunAPalooza which also includes the Asbury Park Half Marathon and Jersey Shore Team Relay. Get info on those events at http://www.RunAPalooza.org. This is a non certified marathon. It is a point to point course with the start is in Seaside Hts, NJ and the finish in Asbury Park, NJ. The distance may vary from 26.2 miles based on the course that we must use on that day. Much of the course is on boardwalks but some is on roads where traffic is not controlled. This is primarily a Relay.Info on the Relay is at http://www.RunAPalooza.org. But many people do the entire course on their own. There are water stops about every two miles and support along the course. There is a staggered start based on your estimated finish time. A bus is available to take runners from the finish in Asbury Park to the start in Seaside Hts. Make sure you check that you will require the bus.
