About This Activity

Weather Update #3: the 2017 Run for the Animals 5K has been postponed by a week because of the forecast high winds.  The new date and time will be Saturday, May 20 at 9:00 am 

Take Mom to the beach for Mother's Day Weekend, save animals in need, enjoy an awesome buffet and run a 5K - ALL AT THE SAME TIME!

Close to everywhere.  Just 8 minutes from the Harrah's , Borgata & Golden Nugget Casinos in Atlantic City.

Awesome post-race buffet by Laguna Grill and Rum Bar.  Possibly the best post-race buffet of any race in New Jersey!  ($5 fee for buffet for non-participants)

  • The Marine Mammal Stranding Center has responded to over 4,800 strandings of whales, dolphins, seals and sea turtles that have washed ashore, over the years throughout New Jersey.  

This is a 5K Race with Chip Timing and Results Kiosks by SpectaSport - "Contemporary Timing for a Connected World".  Results available on kiosks instantly upon finishing!  Online results published and updated while race is in progress!
