About This Activity

The Jersey Shore Half Marathon has a history that places it as one of the oldest distance events held in New Jersey and the surrounding area. The first Jersey Shore Marathon was held January 9, 1972. The Jersey Shore Marathon grew and became an outstanding road race in New Jersey with over 1,000 competitors. Many familiar names in marathoning and New Jersey road racing were all part of the Jersey Shore Marathon along with many runners who experienced their first marathon. The race, held in winter, was always tempting mother nature. The 1977 race was best remembered for being held during a driving snow storm that followed two days after the largest storm in several years which made for a snow covered route.
